About This Wine:
It’s perched on a rolling hillside where the San Francisco Bay meets the outskirts of Napa and Sonoma counties. The estate vineyard is uniquely positioned, as Sonoma Valley ends on its south side, the Sonoma Coast lies just to the east, and the Carneros region beckons on the west. It has been described as the “compass rose” of Sonoma.
Director of Winemaking Joe Nielsen is parlaying the estate vineyard into a model of thoughtful precision farming and sustainability, while also elevating each wine in the portfolio.
“The Sonoma Coast is the embodiment of cool-climate growing regions,” Nielsen says. “Our journey introduces new parcels from the Petaluma wind gap into the Pinot Noir blend, and a touch from the Russian River Valley to provide depth and intensity.” The result: a phenomenal wine from a truly special place.
