Winemaker Notes

Expressive, silky, and rened. Jolie opens with fresh aromas of red cherry, currants, tart strawberry and dried rose petals. The palate echoes the light red fruit aromas with an incredibly juicy texture upfront that is highlighted by balanced acidity and very subtle tannins that frame the edges.

WE 95
Wine Enthusiast
A captivating blend of savory characteristics along with great balance and a good fruit foundation make this wine especially interesting. Elements of sage, tobacco and earth mingle with red and black cherries, and are backed by moderate tannins and good, nervy acidity.

The 2018 Pinot Noir Jolie Estate Vineyard is more perfumed and angular, with lots of Bing cherry and dried strawberry fruits to go with white flowers, chalky minerality, and rose petal-like aromas and flavors. It's another ethereal, seamless, medium-bodied beauty that shines for its complexity, elegance, and purity.

Maggy Hawk, California
Maggy Hawk Winery Video

Situated adjacent to the redwoods and one of the last vineyards before one reaches the Pacific, the Maggy Hawk vineyard is located in what many refer to as the “deep end” of Anderson Valley. The vineyard contains a complex patchwork of different facings, slopes and clones, all of which conspire to provide a dazzling array of different Pinot Noirs.

The soil is comprised of decomposed sandstone, known for exceptional drainage and low nutrients, both critical to the development of naturally balanced vines.

As one might expect, yields are controlled by Mother Nature in this setting; in most years, the Maggy Hawk vineyard provides no more than two tons per acre.

Adversity often brings greatness to Pinot Noir, the most difficult of grapes to master. Greatness also arises in champion racehorses, something Proprietor Barbara Banke recognized and celebrates in the gifted Maggy Hawk, a winning thoroughbred honored with this Pinot Noir effort from the deep end of Mendocino’s Anderson Valley, mere moments from the Pacific Ocean.

Each wine in the series is named for a horse born to Maggy Hawk: Jolie, Afleet, Stormin’ and Unforgettable, and to her sire, Hawkster. The unique expression borne of training, bloodlines, site and alchemy applies equally to wine and horses – Pinot Noir and thoroughbreds in particular.

Anderson Valley, located in Mendocino County just above Sonoma County, is one of California’s coolest AVAs, allowing it a long growing season. Only 15 miles long, the region makes a slice eastward through the mountains, from the frigid Pacific Ocean. Dramatic diurnal temperature variations here preserve grape acidity and thus freshness in the finished wines. These are prime conditions for growing Pinot Noir, and the valley produces many fine versions. Characteristics of Anderson Valley Pinot Noir typically include crisp acidity, cranberry and strawberry notes as well as earthy notes of forest floor and mushroom.

Still Pinot Noir, however, is only part of the story. Pinot Noir, along with Chardonnay, are also grown for Anderson Valley’s exceptional sparkling wines. Produced via the traditional method, these offer a classic toasty note from lees aging, bright, complex fruit notes and a clean, refreshing character.
