Tasting Notes

In our fourth year crafting vineyard designated Pinot Noir from the Ram’s Gate Estate, we have seen this nine-acre parcel thrive under the clockwork breezes from the Petaluma Gap and cool weather dictated by the San Pablo Bay. In the long, even 2013 vintage, time and place converged in what may be the best Estate Pinot Noir yet. Baking spice and red fruit aromas first hit the nose, carrying into the palate redolent of spiced strawberry and vanilla, lifting into molasses, dark mocha and black tea flavors particular to our Carneros wind signature. Drink now through 2022.
