The Making Of

Our Owsley and Vine Hill vineyards provided the Pinot Noir for this vintage. Combined with a variety of soils and clones, the vineyards provide a beautiful variety of elegant fruit.

Virtual Swirl

Tasting wine begins well before the liquid ever touches your lips - it starts with a look, a swirl, and an intake of breath. The swirl serves to open your vintage and introduces oxygen which creates a bouquet of aromas and allows you to gauge viscosity and alcohol content. Our Russian River Valley’s swirl showcases its deep rosewood coloring indicative of a finely developed pinot noir and highlights aromas of cola and cassis with a touch of those classic red fruit flavors and a barrel spice.
