Sourced from the La Cruz Vineyard, the 2016 Pinot Noir benefited from a season of normal annual rainfall, finally giving way to an awakening of vigor and growth. With a mild August, every block on the Estate received 10-20 extra days of phenolic ripening compared to the previous four years. “Our winemaking practices strive to gently guide our wines through our gravity feed cellar with minimal intervention.” The wine was racked once at bottling after 10 months in barrel. Dark cherry and dried cranberry give way to a dense, mouth-watering minerality and fruit driven mid-palate with a long-lasting finish of elegant tannins.
