This Pinot Noir was made with fruit from the Santa Cruz Mountains at a vineyard called Hunter Hill, farmed organically without irrigation or till by German Soto. The vineyard is located 3 miles from the Pacific Ocean, tucked into the misty redwoods and situated on a slope with soils of weathered sandstone and shale loams. The cool climate produces a Pinot with good color and structure that is distinctly Santa Cruz Mountains. With the conversion to Organics, 1/3 of the fruit had some small organic blemishes and was direct-pressed, another 1/3 was destemmed, and the final 1/3 left whole cluster. Pumpovers were used to get the native fermentation going strong, and gentle cap wettings were applied later in the ferment. Aged sur lie in 1 puncheon and 1 barrel for 10 months, before being racked, bottled, and left to bottle age for an additional 9 months this wine received no additives or added sulfites.

Personality: “Pomegranate, red raspberry, redwood duft & cedar define the aromatics of this wine. There is no shortage of structure with driving acidity and firm tannin. Pork & Pinot is a classic pairing and the bracing acidity will cut the fat of a pig roast or salamis beautifully,”
