Winemaker's Notes

This Pinot Noir comes exclusively from a 3.3 acre plot on our Lavender Hill Vineyard in Carneros which was planted in 1990. This vineyard is on a lush hilly knoll that gives us small, flavorful clusters. We have selected two clones, the St. Claire and Martini, which have proven to grow well in the cool, breezy Carneros Region. Our winemaking of the Pinot Noir continues to evolve as we learn more about our grapes. Pinot Noir winemaking is very different from Cabernet Sauvignon production. I am enjoying this new challenge! After a cold soak to extract more character, we ferment in open top fermenters and do our "punch downs" by actually walking around the tank. The wine is aged in a selection of 30% new Burgundian barrels. In 1999 we opted for an early bottling of the wine and the results are outstanding!
