Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes for our Russian River Pinot came from three vineyards; Galante, Mark West Creek, and our estate Vineyard on Westside Road. Each vineyard spoke boldly through the grapes with it's own personality, and our tasting sessions became enlivened with debate: keep them separate to highlight the difference? Blend them for a more complex whole? The decision was finally unanimous: one wine gave more generosity, more beauty, and more Pinot-ness.
