Critic Review
Wine Enthusiast, Jim Gordon
"Concentrated and fruit-forward, this wine boasts black cherries, blueberries, spearmint and cassis flavors on a full body backed by soft tannins. It is generous, luscious and deep."

"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

Medium pale ruby in color, this wine has fresh aromas of sweet barrel smoke, blueberry preserves and the pennyroyal mint that grows wild in the vineyard. The sweet entry of the palate leads to a smooth, focused, and dense texture. A small percentage of whole cluster in the fermentation lends the rich, resinous quality of aromatic wood on the finish.

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 season started out with an unseasonably warm, dry winter. It wasn't until the end of March that cold, rainy weather arrived, and the mild spring gave the vines a strong, early start. Even with above normal temperatures throughout the summer and fall, we still experienced the marine influence that defines the limiting conditions of our premium Pinot Noir sites - cool morning fog and afternoon wind. This vintage produced great wines that are fresh, focused, and beautifully balanced.
