Tasting NOTES

Grown on our estate's cool climate clay loam, gravel soils, this Pinot sings of red cherries and freshly baked brioche. Light in body but intense in its dark, earthy forest flavors.

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.
