WINEMAKER NOTES

The aroma of rich dark cherry and tasted oak sets the stage for what’s on the pallet; a deep expression of pinot noir with black cherry and rhubarb with a hint of smoke. Cedar and toasted French oak are harmonious with the fruit, while a pleasant light spice invigorates the tongue throughout. Mendocino remains one of the best kept secrets of the Pinot Noir scene.

VINTAGE NOTES

 

FRUIT SOURCE: MANCHESTER RIDGE VINEYARD

Manchester Ridge is located in the discontinuous Mendocino Ridge AVA, near the Sonoma County line.  This rugged and diverse location is accessible only by timber flanked logging roads, which climb up to 2058 ft elevation, and then reveal the dramatic vineyard setting with Pacific Ocean views. Due to the ridge top elevation, the vineyard is above the fog line and most frost threats; however, the extremes of spring weather equate to small yields that average less than two tons per acre. This fruit takes full advantage of early morning sun and maritime breezes that develop in the early afternoon allowing a harvest that matures slowly to produce structured wines with exotic aromatic profiles and pronounced acidity
