Vineyard Notes
After harvest, the wine was fermented in open-top fermenters and punched down twice daily. This gentler and more traditional form of cap management helps to retain the soft tannin structure of Pinot Noir. The wine was then aged in 20% new French oak and 80% 1 & 2-year-old French oak

Harvest Notes
Across California in 2018, the growing season was long and even, with moderate winter rains result-ing in later than usual bud break. A warm spring followed by a mid-summer heat wave and cooler temperatures in the fall, caused us to pick our fruit a little later than in previous years. These conditions allowed fruit to ripen evenly at a steady pace, making for a well-balanced wine.
