2017 Radian Vineyard Pinot Noir
Located on the far western edge of the Sta. Rita Hills, Radian Vineyard is a vast vineyard producing premium Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes in a very extreme setting. Dramatic changes in altitude and soils laden with gravel, diatomaceous earth, and fossils of ancient sea creatures. Radian, and its sister, Bentrock Vineyard, both sit on the Rancho Salsipuedes property and produce wines of power and intensity. Our 2017 bottling from this vineyard is a blend of clones 777 and 113. The fruit was hand-picked, fermented in small lots, then barrel-aged for 18 months using 50% new French oak. Bottled in May 2019.
