Planted in 1996, and located 8 miles from the Pacific Ocean, Kanzler Vineyard is recognized as one of the jewels of the Sonoma Coast. While we have been making a Single Vineyard bottling from this site since 2002, today, with vines averaging more than 20 years of age, Kanzler is a vineyard in all its glorious prime.
Sophisticated, and with an elegant spherical quality, the 2018 Kanzler Pinot Noir offers a fresh, finely woven structure, with dazzling layers of blueberry, boysenberry, red apple, and raspberry tart, with hints of lemon thyme, honey, mint, and earth.
