This is our fourth release from our estate ranch on the far western coastal edge of the Mendocino Ridge.  At 1250 ft and 3.3 miles from the ocean, this vineyard is the coolest in our single vineyard portfolio.  The purity, structure and natural aligned acidity we get from this site are the best in our cellar.  An ancient oceanic soils, providing, excellent drainage coupled with the maritime climate makes for a compelling expression of our coastal forest surroundings.  We planted several heritage field selections of Pinot Noir to this site along with four Dijon clones.  A naturally low yielding site producing small tight clusters with slightly thicker skins due to the coastal climate.  Exotic plum, black cherries, sage, fir tips and black truffle notes are signature on the palate and on the nose.  We love the depth of this sexy wine and the continual unfolding of layers.  Pair with Cassoulet or Duck Confit.
