A tantalizing and unique bouquet of black cherry, shaved porcini, redwood bark, black pepper, plum, slate, pink rose petals, blackberry zing; all with a briar note. The volcanic soil and whole cluster really shine through on this dark, deep, brooding and rich Pinot Noir! The texture is unctuous; taut and lush all at once. On the palate it’s lively with accents of cedar, fresh tobacco and chicory. This wine is beautifully integrated with bright acidity and a lingering pepper finish.

Located high on the northwest flank of Sonoma Mountain, this panoramic mountainside site receives coastal fog and cool air flowing from the Pacific through the Petaluma Gap and slamming directly into the upper reaches of Sonoma Mountain. The 2018 growing season here was extraordinary.
