The complexity of the 2014 Pinot Noir comes from six clones grown in two locales on the chilly Sonoma Coast, a terrific spot for exemplary cool-climate Pinot Noir. Both sites were hand-pruned and picked. The soils in these low yielding, wind-swept sites range from the famed "Goldridge" to shallow gravelly loams. Each site and clone provided different aromas, flavors and structure and the winery developed the blend from these diverse components. The first site, representing 60% of the vintage, is less than seven miles from the coast, west of Sebastopol at an elevation of almost 700 feet with 15 degree slope. It was densely planted a decade ago and features Guyot training with 16-18 clusters per vine of 115, 777, 667 and Calera clones. The second site (40% of the vintage) is situated northwest of Forestville and offers clones 828 and 115 and contributes richness and depth.
