The rows of Pinot Noir grapes in our Carneros vineyard stretch out across the edge of the valley.

A notoriously challenging variety, Pinot Noir prefers the foggy, wind-swept slopes of the Carneros region, in southern Napa Valley. The climate here helps to retain the aromatic complexity and bright acidity of the grape as flavor development advances. The renowned Rancho Carneros Vineyard is home to 45 year-old, head-trained, dry-farmed vines that bring depth and complexity to the blend. The vineyard is also home to a small, more-southern section of vines planted in 2005 which contribute weight, richness and darker fruit tones. This year’s blend is a combination of the two sections.
