Winemaker's Notes

Presenting our benchmark style of sensual aromas, elegant intensity and depth, the wine is layered with black fruit flavors, hints of spice, followed by a long finish...it is crafted to be delicious at release and we're confident it will continue to mature and bring pleasure for many years.

A beautiful warm, dry summer with mild fall temperatures brought the fruit to perfect ripeness. Full maturity came with rather high brix. The 1999 vintage had very small yields, resulting in wines of intense flavor and complexity. Pinot noir grapes were selected and hand picked from Madrona & Abetina Vineyards, (all Ponzi owned & managed properties) and blended with Durant and Linda Vista Vineyards. Yields were 1- 1.5 T/acre. All of the fruit was hand-sorted for quality.
