This Pinot Noir is produced from our Pali Estate Vineyard in Sta. Rita Hills. Planted in 2012, this 50-acre vineyard is located along the Hwy 246 corridor on Gypsy Canyon. It sits on a gentle, Southeast-facing slope comprised of mostly sandy soils. Our Estate Grown wine is a blend of clones 23, 2A, 777, 828 and Pommard and is fermented and aged separately in small lots. This wine was barrel-aged for 18 months in 50% new French oak and bottled in May 2018.
