Winemaker Notes

Aromatically pure Pinot Noir, showing a balance of ripe raspberry and earthy/spicy notes. Palate-feel belies the use of traditional whole-cluster fermentation, with a fine-grained tannin texture acting as a backdrop to ripe black fruit flavors. Complex and long - will evolve in the glass over the course of an evening.

Wine Enthusiast
This bottling shows deep black plum, elderberry, rose and purple flower aromas. The palate is dense, with black plum and tart cranberry enhanced by Earl Grey tea and potpourri. Thanks to a strong tannic backbone and buoyant acidity, these flavors are interesting now but will meld together more compellingly in the years to come. Drink 2019–2034. Cellar Selection.

From their estate vineyard and winery located in the cool foothills of the Edna Valley, Rob Rossi and Bill Swanson join together with winemaker Nathan Carlson and the farming wisdom of the Talley family, to craft this impressive line up of wines. Sustainably farmed, the vines enjoy thedelicate balance of a cool climate and lean soils, producing wineswith a unique sense of character and place. Originally planted in1978, the vineyard has been given new life under their ownership and we expect to add to the strength of wines from this region.

California’s coolest wine growing area, Edna Valley excels in the production of high quality Pinot noir, Chardonnay, Rhône Blends and aromatic white wines. It has a cool Mediterranean climate and an incredibly long growing season, giving late-ripening varieties plenty of opportunity to develop great phenolic complexity.

Its northwest to southeast orientation creates a direct path for cool Pacific air and fog to penetrate the valley from the Los Osos and Morro Bay area inwards. Low hillsides of both calcareous and volcanic soils are home to much of the vineyard acreage of the Edna Valley.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
