2018 Pinot Noir
Ferrington Vineyard

Ask a winemaker who crafts Pinot Noir from Ferrington Vineyard to discuss the allure of the site and the descriptor often used is "sauvage." A French term for "wild," the word not only accurately describes the rugged countryside north of Boonville, where temperatures can swing 50 degrees during the day in the growing season, but also the unbridled flavor profile of the wines crafted from there. Anderson Valley is uniquely suited to growing New World Pinot Noir rooted in Burgundian technique, and Ferrington Vineyard is perhaps the truest example of this happy harmony. Ours is crafted predominantly with the Pommard clone from two distinct blocks at Ferrington Vineyard to enhance the spice and natural earthiness that make this isolated coastal outpost so enticing. This is unmistakably cool-climate Pinot Noir — firm, layered and exquisitely balanced.
