We grow Pinot Noir at Jespersen Ranch in the Edna Valley. The vineyard is nestled into a hillside just three miles from the Pacific Ocean and derives much of its personality from the coast. We harvested two exceptional blocks at Jespersen Ranch for this wine and fermented the juice in small, stainless steel tanks. A portion of whole cluster fermentation added a delicate tannin structure, spice and length that added to the ageability of this wine. We delicately pressed the wine using a basket press and transferred the wine into French Oak barrels for 10 months of aging. The resulting wine is delicate, with exceptional floral, fruit and black tea flavors.
