Treehouse Vineyard hails in the historic Russian River Valley, eight miles from the Pacific Ocean at an elevation of 750 feet above the fog line. Previously, this land was used for grazing cattle, which means there was no need for a source of water. To this day, water must be carted up to the vineyard to water the vines which were first planted in 2006.

The 14-acre vineyard is a natural masterpiece with coastal cypress on one end and a ring of redwoods at the peak. Volcanic, iron-rich red dirt covers the ranch, providing a unique and perfect home for five different clones of Pinot Noir. This sunny, magical vineyard delivers exceptional flavor, intensity and texture.

Tasting
Notes

Nose: Crème de cassis, kirsch and black plum ignite the senses, while notes of chocolate and fresh baked blackberry pie are energetically layered throughout.

Mouth: Compact and linear entry, with great depth of flavor. Notes of cranberry and raspberry complement the bold tannins and bright acid, while the finish is expansive, clean and long.
