Winemaker Notes

Marin wines mostly tend toward the lighter bodied, brighter acidity end of the California spectrum, and that's generally true of this Pinot noir. This wine has secondary earth and spice notes show through beyond the fruit notes.

Critical Acclaim

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Kendric's best Pinot yet, from this magnificent vintage. Strikes a fine balance between lushness of raspberry fruit and a stony crispness that pulls back tantalizingly into dryness and minerality, then returns to spicy richness on the finish.
BH 90
Burghound.com
An elegant and high-toned red and blue berry nose displays attractive violet and spice aromas that precede delicious, balanced and pure middle weight flavors that offer fine length if not the depth that one might like to see. However, the harmony of expression and underlying material are such that my score offers the benefit of the doubt that this will develop more depth with a few years in bottle. Lovely and worth a look.

Kendric Vineyards, California
Stewart Johnson farms the Kendric Johnson Vineyard on leased land just south of the Petaluma Gap, and makes the wine from this 8.5 acre vineyard he planted in 2002 and reaped the first harvest in 2004. Some grapes are sold to Miller Wine Works. Clones are 37, 115, 667, 777, 828, Pommard and Martini. Yields are ridiculously low (0.5 tons per acre in 2004). The wines are de-stemmed, cold soaked, inoculated with Assmanshausen yeast, and barreled into 33% new French oak for 18 months. Stewart crafts about 600 cases of Pinot Noir and Syrah (from Shenandoah Valley).

Stewart could be the brightest and most-educated winemaker around. He graduated from UC Berkeley, obtained a doctorate in political science from Yale, and graduated with a law degree from Hastings. While interning at the Environmental Protection Agency, he was drawn to be in the field instead of an office practicing law. With his wife, who is a Marin native, he discovered the pastoral beauty of Marin County and was drawn to grow grapes there.

Reaching up California's coastline and into its valleys north of San Francisco, the North Coast AVA includes six counties: Marin, Solano, Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino and Lake. While Napa and Sonoma enjoy most of the glory, the rest produce no shortage of quality wines in an intriguing and diverse range of styles.

Climbing up the state's rugged coastline, the chilly Marin County, just above the City and most of Sonoma County, as well as Mendocino County on the far north end of the North Coast successfully grow cool-climate varieties like Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and in some spots, Riesling. Inland Lake County, on the other hand, is considerably warmer, and Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc produce some impressive wines with affordable price tags.
