Pali, 2018 Pinot Noir 'Pali Vineyard'
This Pinot Noir is made from grapes grown on our estate vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills. Pali Vineyard is located along the HWY 246 corridor in Gypsy Canyon. Planted in 2012, this 50-acre vineyard sits on a gentle, southeast facing slope comprised of mostly sandy soil. This Pinot Noir is a blend of clones 23, 2A, 115, 667, 777, 828, and Pommard and was fermented in small lots and punched down by hand multiple times daily. The wine was barrel-aged in 50% new French oak for 18 months and bottled in June, 2020.
