Tasting NOTES

The 2017 Pinot Noir, a family favorite varietal, is sure to be everybody's best friend. Bright, red fruit greets you, soft tones of vanilla and sandalwood make you feel at home and the stunning structure will have you pouring more. Another gift from Rhinefarm and our wine making team, good now and for the next 5-7 years.

Vineyard NOTES

Eight miles north of San Pablo Bay, the Bundschu family's 161+ year-old vineyard wraps around the southwest slopes of the Mayacamas Mountains. The terrain below 150 foot elevation features gently sloping Huichica clay loam soils with gravel deposits and cooler growing conditions that deliver minerality and focused acidity. Wines grown in these blocks bear the Sonoma Coast designation to reflect their cool climate character. Nine distinct blocks of Pinot Noir were harvested separately. 20% of the blend comes from 40+ year-old Heritage Selections and 80% from Dijon clones 667, 115 and 777.

Production NOTES

5-to-7-day cold soak
