Wine Spectator, Kim Marcus
"Lively and spicy, with lithe flavors of cedar box, cherry tart and forest floor that are seamlessly integrated and filled with spicy loaminess. The supple and well-cut finish shows plenty of toastiness."

"The Corners"
Our estate vineyard lies on the west end of
Anderson Valley, near the town of Boonville.

The Vineyard
Planted on hillside slopes with gravelly clay soils
and southern exposures

Warm Afternoon Sun
Fully ripens grapes, while cool breezes from the
Pacific Ocean—only 12 miles away—
extends the growing season

Pale ruby in color with nuanced aromas of crushed blueberries, wet stone and forest floor. The palate is focused and dense, with spicy stem notes bringing complexity and grip. Layered flavors of dark fruit, baking spice and earth lead into a supple and lengthy finish.

  • Crushed Blueberries
  • Wet Stone
  • Forest Floor
  • Baking Spice

A unique vineyard from 'The Corner' of Anderson Valley. This site is considered to be special due to the steep hillsides, aspect, and light gravelly soils that combine to create optimal ripening conditions. This very rugged vineyard continuously produces fruit of great depth and character. Our 'Corners" Pinot Noir is typically sourced from the upper elevation blocks (pommard clone) , where small vines and berries produce a concentrated and opulent wine.

Vintage NotesThe 2019 vintage began with ample rains and welcome soil saturation. An uncharacteristically wet May kept vintners on their toes overseeing vigourous vine growth and a delayed bloom. A long Indian summer followed with mild temperatures, allowing the fruit to ripen at slow, even place. This enabled winegrowers to manage picking schedules for optimal ripeness and quality in the fruit. The resulting wines are exceptional and elegant.
