Wine maker notes
We sourced the majority of our Pinot Noir from EdnaValley, which we like for its distinctively cool climate, ideal for this varietal. Near the town of San Luis Obispo, this valley has a unique east–west alignment that allows fog to funnel in from the Pacific. This results in temperate days and a long growing season, producing Pinot Noir with ripe tannins and aromatic black-cherry notes. The fruit from Monterey carries a more brambly minerality, adding balance and complexity. One of the most difficult wines to make, Pinot Noir is fickle and demanding, requiring delicate handling and careful attention. After the fruit was harvested and brought to the winery, it was allowed a three-day cold soak, which prevented the onset of fermentation and allowed the gentle extraction of bright fruit flavors and dark colors. We then fermented the wine in stainless steel tanks, incorporating the skins and juice with regular pump-over. To knit together the flavors and impart complexity and structure, we barrel aged the wine for seven months.

Food pairing
A Pinot Noir for all occasions, this wine pairs with everything from roasted pork tenderloin to pizza takeout.
