The Pinot Noir Estate incorporates fruit from nearly all of the estate vineyard in various amounts. Gnarly old vines, geologically complex hillside soils, and direct impact from coastal winds, all conspire to create highly energized wines with firm backbones, depth of character, and distinctive personalities.
The 2019 is a more delicate, earthen offering than the 2018, with delicate red to black fruits over forest floor and dried leaves. Acidity is fresh but not overbearing and the tannins are fine grained, giving shape and texture to this young wine. The Estate is enjoyable upon release, but as is the case with all of their 2019 wines, it will benefit from 8-10 years of aging.
Food pairing: Duck, lamb, salmon.
