2015 Pinot Noir
Ferrington Vineyard

Just north of Boonville, Ferrington sits in an inconspicuous pocket within one of California's coolest growing regions. It holds the distinction of being the first vineyard in Anderson Valley to earn its own vineyard designation in 1992. Wild temperature fluctuations - sometimes 50 degrees or more in a day - create flavors that are both unbridled and pristine, much like the rugged countryside that shapes them. As Ferrington's stature among Pinot Noir enthusiasts has grown over the past 25 years, access to its coveted fruit has narrowed. The accomplished farming team of Paul Ardzrooni and Norman Kobler micro-manage every block to the specific tastes of the handful of winemakers who are privileged enough to work with the fruit. Ours is crafted predominantly from the Pommard clone, which is revered for its Burgundian flavor profile. This is unmistakably cool-climate Pinot Noir - firm, layered and exquisitely balanced.
