Carneros Pinot Noir

Just as the estate vines were taking root, we first made Pinot Noir on the flats of our Carneros farm in 2007, composed of equal parts of two California heritage clones ideal for the region’s dense clay: Martini and Pommard. The Martini grapes add spice and fresh, high tones complemented by the Pommard’s natural earthiness.
