Winemaker's Notes:

The Santa Lucia Highlands overlook Monterey's Salinas Valley. Southeast facing slopes benefit from morning sun, followed by cooling afternoon sea breezes cresting over the Gabilan Mountains. Vines develop deep roots in alluvial soils deposited over ancient marine terraces. Pinot Noir flourishes here, producing wines characterized by flavors of wild cherry and appealing earthiness.

About Sequana:

Sequana Single vineyard Pinot Noir wines from Green Valley of Russian River Valley and Santa Lucia Highlands are named in honor of Sequana, the Franco-Roman goddess of the River Seine, which flows through the ancestral birthplace of Pinot Noir.

Winemaker and Pinot Noir specialist, James MacPhail, has complete control over the creation of Sequana's limited production wines – from farming to winemaking. He understands Pinot Noir's temperament, its ability to convey the signature of each single vineyard and its preference for restrained, gentle winemaking. He makes his Pinot Noirs by hand in small batches, using cold maceration and native yeasts. "My goal is to express each vineyard’s personality," says James.
