Winemaker's Notes

Most of this wine is from two vineyards on Thorn Road, south of Sebastopol, owned and farmed by Ted Klopp and his in-laws. The little portion from Russian River Valley is from Ted's Laguna Road vineyard north of Sebastopol. The Thorn Road vineyard sits on a beautiful east-facing ridge and is planted to Clone 4 (aka Pommard) and to Dijon 115.

The Laguna Ranch fruit is Pommard from ten year-old vines. These grapes are the best I have had the privilege to work with and the wine shows the dark color, deep berry flavors and rich, silky texture that I look for from Pinot Noir in an outstanding western Sonoma County site.
