Winemaker Notes

Fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks, this wine retains its delightfully fresh and lively fruit flavors. The aromas sing of spring: super floral with peach and apricot complimented by mineral and berry notes. Powerful flavors, good acidity and rich mouth feel are beautifully proportioned and followed by a long dry finish. This is a fantastic and versatile food wine which would pair nicely with foods ranging from Niçoise salad or seared scallops to Thai dishes or even French onion soup.

Wine & Spirits
Keller's pinot noir grows in the Petaluma Wind Gap on soils that originated as the ancient seabed of the San Pablo Bay. The 2007 season brought those elements together in a delicate, persistent wine with ethereal red fruit. The ripe raspberry and fraise des bois flavors carry structural tension right in the fruit, as well as tannins ripened to a satin feel. A scent of rose adds to the fragrance of the fruit and to the finesse of the wine overall. The flavors last, clear, lively and delicious, particularly with a salad of duck confit.

Wine Enthusiast
Made in a light-bodied, lower alcohol style, this Pinot feels silky and gentle in the mouth. It really delivers when it comes to flavor. Displays big, impressive notes of raspberries, cherries, Dr. Pepper cola, red licorice, beef jerkey and smoky sandalwood that are complex and satisfying, and that finish entirely dry. Drink now and over the next four years.

Keller Estate Winery and Vineyards, owned by the Keller family, is nestled in the Sonoma Coast, Northwest of the Carneros region on Lakeville Highway east of Petaluma not far from the edge of the county. They are the southernmost winery in the Sonoma Coast appellation and the first to establish itself in the Petaluma Valley. The San Pablo Bay lies immediately to the south. To the Northwest lies the Petaluma gap where an opening in the coastal hills allows masses of fog to flow freely towards the Petaluma Valley. This geographical signature is unique and creates a cool and long growing season for Keller Estate's vineyards.

The winemaking philosophy at Keller Estate is simple: they respect the terrior that is characteristic of this vineyard estate and they minimize the handling and manipulation of the grapes to preserve the quality. They have pursued a blueprint of clonal diversity based on the altitude, orientation and soil composition of each vineyard block that is best for each individual clone. This clonal diversity provides the textures, flavors and aromas with which to build complexity into the wines. Winemaker Michael McNeill spends considerable time in the vineyard, assessing crop levels, canopy management and irrigation timing. However, his most important decision comes from tasting the ripening fruit over and over again – the optimal time to harvest.

Sonoma County, California

A vast appellation covering Sonoma County’s Pacific coastline, the Sonoma Coast AVA runs all the way from the Mendocino County border, south to the San Pablo Bay. The region can actually be divided into two sections—the actual coastal vineyards, marked by marine soils, cool temperatures and saline ocean breezes—and the warmer, drier vineyards further inland, which are still heavily influenced by the Pacific but not quite with same intensity.

Contained within the appellation are the much smaller Fort Ross-Seaview and Petaluma Gap AVAs.

The Sonoma Coast is highly regarded for elegant Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and, increasingly, cool-climate Syrah. The wines have high acidity, moderate alcohol, firm tannin, and balanced ripeness.

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.”
