Wines Pouring

  • 2019 Redwoods' Edge Pinot Noir
    Anderson Valley
    Expand
    With the block’s signature aromatics on full display, our 2019 Redwoods’ Edge Pinot Noir opens with scents of fresh picked violets, roses, raspberries and strawberries complexed by notes of clove, pipe tobacco, cinnamon and vanilla. The concentrated red fruit core gains richness on the palate, while lively acidity and a wet stone minerality provide lift through the long expressive finish. Enjoy upon release or cellar for up to 8-10 years.
    Suggested Retail Price: $65
  • 2019 Gap's Crown Pinot Noir
    Sonoma Coast
    Expand
    The fruit profile of our Gap’s Crown Vineyard block is so consistent and so vivid that we’ve taken to calling our Pinot Noir from here “cherry pie in a glass”. Our 2019 bottling is no exception, with ripe cherry and blackberry aromas leaping from the glass, joined by notes of vanilla, brown spice and caramel with just a hint of pipe tobacco to make it interesting. On the palate, all this just-baked goodness unfurls in bright, concentrated layers of macerated cherries and sweet toasty oak, hints of which persist throughout the long complex finish. Enjoy upon release or cellar for up to 8-11 years.
    Suggested Retail Price: $75
  • 2019 Jasper Freestone
    Sonoma Coast
    Expand
    This is the first Pinot Noir bottling from our family’s new Jasper Freestone Estate Vineyard near the Sonoma Coast. This is an historic, windswept spot that we discovered is ideal for growing profoundly expressive Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Upon opening, the wine unleashes buoyant notes of Bing cherry, currant and alpine strawberry nuanced by hints of dark chocolate, allspice and caramel. On the palate, mouthfilling richness and weight that belies the vineyard’s youth give way to a long, concentrated, dark berry and sweet vanilla finish. Enjoy upon release or cellar for up to 7-9 years.
    Suggested Retail Price: $85
  • 2019 Rivers Turn Pinot Noir
    Anderson Valley
    Expand
    This may be the best vintage yet for one of our most exotically flavored wines. Deeply concentrated, exquisitely complex, and sumptuously textured, our 2019 River Turn Pinot Noir delivers the alluring black fruit, chocolate, and brown spice character this part of the vineyard is known for. On the palate, the dark berry core gains richness and length with hints of sweet vanillin oak lingering on the never-ending finish. Enjoy upon release or cellar for up to 9-11 years.
    Suggested Retail Price: $65
