"Keefer Ranch is located in the Green Valley
appellation in the southwestern corner of the
Russian River Valley. The 30 acre vineyard
is located on gently rolling hills in an area
known to have some of the coolest weather in
the Russian River Valley. Morning and evening
fog, gentle afternoon breezes, cool overnight
temperatures and warm afternoon sun produce
grapes with terrific natural acidity and a
combination of elegance and intensity. Marcy
Keefer grows some of the best Pinot Noir grapes
in Sonoma County and we are proud to have her
as a member of our grower family. The site has
a superb micro-climate, offering just the right
amount of warmth during the day and very cool
nights, which leads to intensely focused red
fruited wine with strong natural acidity.
AROMATICS: Juicy pomegranate, cranberry,
lingonberry, citrus peel and touch of vanilla bean.
ON THE PALATE: Ripe, red cherry and raspberry
with notes of sassafras. Medium body with
a bright acidity and bursting with rich
concentrated flavor. Berries and cream evoke a
velvety finish. "
