Vibrant ruby color. Layered aromatics - chinese 5 spice, raspberry, crushed violets, and sassafrass. Both unctuous and vibrant on the palate - spiced strawberry preserves mingle with earthiness, with accompanying hints of chocolate in the background. Well integrated oak brings a tension and energy to this vintage of Brown Ranch Pinot Noir.


The Brown Ranch vineyard sits on a hillside within the Napa Carneros ‘banana belt’ – a specific micro-climate where the morning fog burns off earlier, warming the vineyard for a longer period of time than other sites in the appellation.

Wine Facts

The 2016 harvest was early, with slightly lower than normal yield, but exceptional fruit quality. After many years of drought, we experienced winter rains that helped alleviate the dry conditions that plagued us for the last four years. The entire ripening season enjoyed cooler than average days and nights. July and August were particularly temperate allowing for longer hang times, which ripened the grapes uniformly.
