About This Vintage
For this vintage, we have selected the best fruit from Sonoma and Mendocino counties, providing tremendous depth, balance and quality.
The 2020 growing season started cooler than previous years. With moderate summer temperatures, and few heat spikes, the growing season was drawn out. The longer hang time allowed the grapes to develop complex flavors and great tannin structure. 2020 was a great growing season, with great yields, flavors, and structure.
Our pinot grapes were handpicked at night before being destemmed and fruit fermented in stainless steel at cool temperatures for an average of 3 weeks. The wine then aged for ten months in a diverse barrel regimen that includes new (20%), second use (30%) and neutral (50%) French oak from Cavin, Taransaud, François Frères & Remond cooperages.
