Winemaker Notes

In keeping with the traditional Dierberg style, the 2009 Pinot Noir is a structured wine, yet one that retains great balance, nerve and elegance. Dark raspberry and wild blackberry notes are accented by the characteristic forest floor aromas typical of our vineyard terroir. Flavors lean towards the fresh raspberry end of the spectrum, with light mocha and complex forest floor nuances.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Pinot Noir Dierberg Vineyard possesses remarkable depth and richness, not to mention terrific balance. Supple and generous, the 2009 offers up black cherries, mint, flowers and spices, all in a juicy, forward style. Floral notes add lift on the gracious finish. The 2009 spent 18 months in French oak barrels, 30% new.

Dierberg Estate Vineyards lie very close to the Pacific Ocean in California's Central Coast wine region. The vineyards provide both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay for Dierberg Estate wines. In 1997, Mary and Jim Dierberg planted the first vineyard near the town of Santa Maria. Seven years later, they planted a second vineyard in what is known as Drum Canyon, south of Santa Maria, in the Santa Rita Hills. Our coastal environment provides a combination of sunny days, maritime breezes and well drained soils, perfectly suited to cool climate viticulture.

The Central Coast's cool-weather terroir is exemplified at the two estate vineyards that provide Pinot Noir and Chardonnay for Dierberg Estate: the original Dierberg Vineyard in Santa Maria - planted in 1997 - and the newer Drum Canyon vineyard located farther to the south in the Santa Rita Hills. In both vineyards, cooling Pacific Ocean fog and breezes keep this sunny corner of California far cooler than one would imagine. This phenomenon favors crisp acidity and gentle ripening in classic Burgundian Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes.

Dierberg's 160-acre vineyard outside the town of Santa Maria, and just 14 miles from the Pacific Ocean, is planted to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. It lies at the southern end of the Santa Maria Valley and is graced with gentle hillside slopes, sandy loam soils and western exposures. About one third of the vineyard is planted to Chardonnay, with the rest planted to Pinot Noir.

A lesser-known but elite AVA within the larger Santa Barbara district, the Santa Maria Valley AVA runs precisely west to east starting near the coast. The valley funnels cool, Pacific Ocean air to the vineyards more inland, allowing grapes a longer hang time to ripen evenly and achieve their full potential by harvest time. Combined with minimal rainfall, consistent warm sunshine, and well-drained soils, it is an ideal environment for grape growing.

Many of the wineries here are small and highly respected, having established a reputation in the 1970s and 80s for producing excellent Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. More recently, Syrah has also proven quite successful in the region. Many vineyards are owned by growers who sell their grapes to other wineries, so it is common to see the same vineyard name on bottlings from different wineries. Bien Nacido Vineyard is perhaps the best-known and most prestigious.
