Winemaker's Notes

Four Boys Vineyard is the name we gave to the four small Pinot Noir vineyards we have at the winery that, coincidentally, matches the number of sons I have. Our vineyards are aptly named Anthony, Stephen, Robert, and John. Planted to the famous "La Tache" clone of Pinot Noir, with origins from Burgundy, as well as several Dijon clones, these vineyards rival the best within the Santa Lucia Highlands appellation. This jammy and complex wine has deep concentrated aromas of ripe black cherry, spice, and a hint of smoke. The full, lush mouth feel follows layered flavors of candied plum and vanilla, reflecting the depth of the fruit and lavish use of oak. Beautifully balanced, it offers good body, rich texture, and a long, lingering finish. Grilled meats or hearty bistro makes for a perfect match.

"Just gorgeous, an absolutely wonderful Pinot Noir to drink. Fully dry and crisp in coastal acidity; it shows rich, complex flavors of cherries, red currants and mocha, with a grounding, earthy animality suggesting grilled mushrooms and beef jerky. Beautiful now, and should gradually improve for a decade."
