Facts of Note

PICK

PLANTED

1996

FERMENTATION

Slow & cool

Back in 2002, Steve Kanzler took a chance and sold our founders grapes that were used to make some of our first Pinot Noir. Over the years the Kanzler property has become recognized as a jewel of Sonoma Coast, featuring Goldridge sandy loam soil, select Pinot Noir clones and a cool-climate that adds a verve and edge to the character of this wine.


The resulting Pinot noir is a pillar of our Fall offering, and it showcases the purity of the fruit from this former apple orchard, along with all the delicious nuances it has to offer.
