Organically farmed single vineyard: Grand Vent Vineyard (previously Clary Ranch) in the Petaluma Gap AVA. Fermented 100% whole cluster, 7 days carbonic, followed by another week traditional maceration with one foot tread daily. Aged in neutral oak barrels for 9 months, no additions save for 20 ppm SO2 3 weeks before bottling. Due to scarcity, I didn't get a chance to try. The winemaker says: "The Grand Vent Vineyard, formerly Clary Ranch, might be the coldest Pinot Noir site in the state. Inundated with wind and fog from the Pacific Ocean just a few miles to the West, on land that was once only deemed hospitable for cattle grazing, Grand Vent Pinot optimizes that rare harmony of electric concentration between deep brooding fruit and vibrant acidity. Delicately lifted and floral, while bounding with red fruits, exotic spices, and an alluring briny tang. If Captain Ron drank Pinot Noir, this would be the one."
