Description

Every year, I craft this regional Pinot using an intricate blending technique. I begin by creating our vineyard designated wines, each of which showcases a unique terroir within the expanse of our diverse appellation. Then I choose from the remaining lots those I intend for this wine. Even in this larger blend, the addition of a single barrel can make a significant difference. For 2009, I made my selection from Klopp Ranch, Meredith Estate, Coopersmith and Olivet Lane. Pulling from our best vineyards, I was able to form a blend that reflects the ebullient profile of the entire Russian River Valley.
