Available Now!

Sourced from multiple vineyard locations in the Anderson Valley, this Pinot Noir is an assertive yet elegant wine, brimming with aromatics of black cherry skins and flavors of raspberry compote.

Vintage Notes: 

The 2016 growing season had an early start partly due to winter and spring rains, where the vines were reinvigorated after the drought conditions from previous years. The warm and dry summer contributed to an earlier than normal start to harvest with a slightly above average yield and a normal ripening curve.

Vineyard Notes: 

Derived from the Deep End of Anderson Valley, which is the coolest end of the 18 mile long stretch, the fruit for this wine hails primarily from neighboring vineyards. These sites bear a preponderance of Dijon and California heritage clones. Altitude and proximity to the ocean, combined with a high concentration of sandstone, provide optimal growing conditions for Pinot Noir.

Wine Profile: 

Our 2016 “Les Voisins” Pinot Noir is a powerhouse in a concise package. Upfront, the wine is brimming with aromas of blueberry compote, kirsch and wet sandstone. The plush, yet dense palate is very approachable while showing layer upon layer of complexity with each swirl of the glass. Blackberry and graphite flavor dance together. The finish is lengthy and persistent. This wine is the perfect introduction to new Pinot Noir fans and will also please the most critical fans of classic Burgundy.
