2021 ESTATE RESERVE PINOT NOIR
13 barrels produced
The 2021 Estate Reserve showcases everything that we know and love about the Sebastopol Hills. This wine represents the soul of the 14-acre vineyard we planted around our home in 1996. Proximity to the Pacific Ocean offers the Estate Vineyard a heavy maritime influence, ideal for growing Pinot Noir. This vintage opens with aromatics of warm baking spices followed by a dried herbal tinge and a dash of white pepper. Texturally this wine offers a fleshy and broad dose of fruit as a result of “extended maceration.” Red plum, passionfruit and fig leaf coat the mouth followed by a medley of mixed berries.
2021 WALKER STATION PINOT NOIR
9 barrels produced
We have leased and farmed Walker Station Vineyard for 8 years and at harvest the fruit never fails to excite us as we sort it across the line. 14 months later in bottle, we’re even more excited by a wine that offers expressive aromatics of electric red fruit, rhubarb and black tea. Texturally, it’s vervy and angular with punchy acidity and classic Walker Station fruit expression: bing cherry, red currant, boysenberry and raspberry. The 2021 Walker Station Pinot Noir is comprised of 89% Calera Clone and 11% Dijon 115 clone.
