2020 Estate White Pinot Noir
To me, this wine is serious yet elegant, and I feel that really comes through in the notes of white floral and magnolia that then transition to an asian pear with minerality. The palate is round and polished with vibrancy. I want to be enjoying this wine on a boat, jamming to Yacht Rock music. I invite you to join me!
The 2020 vintage will be one of the most memorable in our history. Rainfall during bloom coupled with cool temperatures set the stage for a historically low fruit set. The summer was delightfully moderate, and by the end of August, concentrated juice from tiny grape berries was intense with robust flavors. Harvest kicked off on August 28 and continued beautifully through Labor Day. Then, we experienced a freak windstorm that resulted in wildfires due to hot temperatures and arid conditions. Our team decided to continue with harvest to preserve our grapes. Meticulous sorting and attentive winemaking were essential to achieving our quality standards. We are fortunate to have some of the finest wine we can produce in bottle.
