2012 Pinot Noir

The inaugural release of Texture is a composition of balance, both in its flavor profile and in my philosophical approach to Pinot Noir. An earthy, feral and luscious combination of Dijon and Heritage clones from vineyards on the Sonoma Coast and the hillsides above Anderson Valley. It is everything I love about Pinot Noir.
