Winemaker’s Notes

The 2019 vintage started about two weeks later than the average year, after a wet Spring. We had some showers during bloom that caused some shatter creating millerandage or hens and chicks in the clusters. These small, loose clusters lead to more concentrated wines with greater natural acidity. We enjoyed a moderate to warm season that was mostly uneventful, allowing all the hang time we needed to fully ripen the grapes.


Tasting Notes

Rob’s favorite Pinot - his Goldilocks vintage! Aromas of Sarsaparilla and wild berry patch. Rich, viscous mouthfeel, sour black cherry and lots of juicy acidity on the finish.
