Perched on a rocky hillside high above the Petaluma Gap, on the side of Sonoma Mountain, the vineyard enjoys excellent drainage and good airflow. While it is a relatively cool site It tends to produce riper fruit then either Sonoma Stage or Platt Vineyard.
The 2015 Vintage started with a cool spring that limited crop yields severely. . .especially in the Sonoma Coast. The lower crop yields produced a fairly intense vintage with riper fruit profiles.
Our Pinot Noir fermentations are relatively short…typically lasting form 9-11 days. We don’t have a rule based approach to using whole clusters but most ferments include 10-20% whole clusters.
