This wine is a blend of Pinot Noir lots from two exceptional Santa Rita Hills Vineyards.   Zotovich Vineyard (clones 113 and 114), grown close to the ocean in white sandy soil, provides bright almost perfume-like Pinot Noir flavors.  The steep hillside Sebastiano Vineyard (“Swan” clone) provides rich structure and concentrated flavors. Deep ruby color with aromas of fresh berries, slightly toasty, with hint of vanilla. Well structured with classic Santa Rita Pinot flavors and long full finish.

Winemaker Notes
Crushed into small open top fermenters and cold-soaked for two days, the must was inoculated and fermented on the skins for two weeks to develop full rich flavor and structure.
