Estate Grown Pinot Noir

Appellation: Sonoma County - Russian River Valley

Tasting Notes: Heavenly aromas of dark cherry fruit greet the nose.  Integrated flavors of ripe berries and warm spice tones fill the mouth and lead to a smooth full bodied finish.  This elegant wine with concentrated fruit will continue to mature and become more complex.  Delicious paired with salmon, pork, and chicken.

Vineyard Character: This two acre O’Connell Vineyard™ parcel is 100% Pommard clone on 104-14 rootstock. The gravelly Gold Ridge loam is the distinguishing characteristic of the Vine Hill region that produces the most outstanding Pinot Noir in the world. The vines are trained to double cordons with 15 to 17 clusters per cordon yielding 3.00 to 3.25 tons per acre.  The cool growing conditions with foggy mornings and ample warm sunshine contribute to the complexity of the fruit and the incomparable finish. 

Winemaking: 100 % Pinot Noir grapes carefully hand picked in the cool, crisp mornings of late September to early October; the grapes are hand-sorted and de-stemmed, then cold soaked prior to pressing and fermentation; Sur lie aged with weekly stirrings; barrel-aged ten months in French oak.  Our Pinot Noir is crafted entirely from the Pommard clone.
