This ocean-influenced Pinot Noir hails from a foggy, sun-kissed vineyard site on the coasts of Santa Cruz. Notes of salty plums, cherries, fresh cut herbs, and smoky acorns dominate this fleshy yet firm palate. Serve chilled!

Making of: The fermentation vat was filled with 50% whole cluster, and 50% destemmed fruit. The native fermentation was cared for with pump-overs and gentle punch-downs. Being pressed after about 2 weeks at dryness, the wine was barreled down ‘sur lies’. One new medium-toast barrel (~20% of the blend) was used as a nod to the Burgundian tradition – the interaction of oak tannin and wine helps to naturally stabilize Pinot’s delicate color and aid in the ability to quench oxygen during aging, helping to build a ‘vin de garde’. After ~10 months, the wine was racked once and bottled. Unfined, unfiltered, 10ppm SO2 added.

Personality: “2021 was a great vintage with lengthy ripening. This wine showcases a full development of flavor. Black cherry, violet, and cola. Silky and succulent,” James says.

By utilizing traditional, artisanal, and elemental practices we create one of a kind wines for those who take interest . Our production is small and our practices meticulous. We go out our way to do things exactly how we feel will best allow the wines to express distinct personality. The fruit is the most important part of the process and it is foundational that we work with good vineyards grown in harmony with their terroir.
