The 2021 Pinot Noir shows brilliant clarity and a light mahogany red color with cherry and pomegranate aromas and flavors brimming from the glass. Earthy notes leave around the fruit with mushroom, black tea, and hints of white pepper along the edge. The wine is light-bodied and plush with balanced acidity and soft tannins that concludes in a bright, mouthwatering finish. It will mellow and age nicely for three to five years after release.

Most of the grapes for our Pinot Noir come from organically farmed vineyards in Mendocino County, including our McNab Ranch and Butler Ranch. The 2021 vintage was a truly exceptional vintage in Mendocino, with ideal conditions for slow, even ripening that brought flavors and aromatic development perfectly in line at harvest time.

Pinot Noir is handled delicately from start to finish, mostly hand-picked and gently crushed before a slow fermentation in open-top tanks for 10-14 days. The cap is gently punched down to integrate the skins into the fermenting juice to extract Pinot’s often delicate flavors and contribute to the wine’s color. After fermentation, the wine aged in 30% new, 100% French oak barrels for ten months before bottling.

Pinot Noir 2021

Careful sourcing from celebrated Mendocino County vineyards with various microclimates and soil types results in a complex, bright, fruit forward Pinot Noir. After hand harvesting, the fruit was gently de-stemmed and moved to small open-top fermenters for a three-day cold soak. It was then inoculated with select yeast strains for fermentation. The cap was punched down daily to reach the desired color and level of phenols. After a gentle pressing in a basket press, the wine was settled and transferred to 100% French oak barrels where it underwent malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged in French oak for ten months and then fined with organic egg whites prior to bottling. This Pinot Noir has aromas of strawberry and raspberry, accented with hints of oak spice and vanilla. In the mouth, this wine is rich with nice soft tannins and flavors of berries, vanilla and spice that fade into a lovely long finish.

We really try to exercise restraint with this Pinot – an elegant wine is always the objective. This is a really versatile red wine. It’s really enjoyable on its own but it also compliments a wide array of dishes because it doesn’t compete with flavors.
