2011 PINOT NOIR
ANDERSON VALLEY

2011 PINOT NOIR ANDERSON VALLEY

    This years Anderson Valley is sourced exclusively from our prized Nash Mill vineyard. These five barrels provide a broad range of bright fruits with earthy complexity. It is a blend of clones 115, 677 and Pommard 2, fermented with 50% wholes clusters. The aromatics are spot on for this vineyard with orange rind, bright red cherry, mushroom, earth and spices. Picked at 22.5 brix on the last week of Sept, this wine shows great depth of flavor, aroma, and balance in structure. This Pinot was fermented by indigeous yeast, and aged on 3 year old barrels for 22 months, allowing for the structure from the whole cluster to fully integrate.

2011 PINOT NOIR
NASH MILL VINEYARD, ANDERSON VALLEY

2011 PINOT NOIR NASH MILL VINEYARD, ANDERSON VALLEY

    This years single vineyard bottling is 100% Pommard clone 2 fermented with 100% whole cluster. These were our favorite three barrels from this lot. We chose the barrels that best expressed the amazing range of aromatics this clone has to offer from this great vineyard site. The 100% whole cluster fermentation gave it added complex aromatics and great structure, which only adds to the length of this gorgeous wine. Aged 22 months on 3 year old French oak barrels. This is Kimberly’s favorite Pinot yet.

2011 ZINFANDEL - MARIER VINEYARD
HUMBOLDT COUNTY

2011 ZINFANDEL - MARIER VINEYARD     These head trained vines are grown on their own roots and are clinging to 45 degree slopes. We cut narrow "goat trails" so that it is possible to walk through the vineyard. The dryness of the site and the long days produce unusually small berries for Zinfandel. This wine is smooth and layered, showing notes of red cherry, pomegranate, raspberry and spice. It is pure in flavor and bright in character with old school peppery spice dominating the finish. It was aged on 3-5 year old French oak with 25% 2 year old Hungarian oak for 24 months. We are so pleased with the results from this vineyard. It was worth the work and the wait.

2009 LE DU COMTE
73% SYRAH, 25% GRENACHE AND 2% VOIGNIER
HUMBOLDT COUNTY

2009 LE DU COMTE 73% SYRAH, 25% GRENACHE AND 2% VOIGNIER      This wine is a joint project between winemakers John Cabot and Larry Schaffer from Tercero winery in the Santa Ynez Valley. This unique wine is a blend of one barrel of Syrah from Thompson Vineyard in Santa Barbara County, one barrel of Grenache from the Camp 4 Vineyard in Los Olivos, and two barrels of Syrah/Viognier co-ferment from our Kimberly’s Vineyard in Humboldt County. There was a 50% stem inclusion average and all components were aged in neutral French Oak for 30 months. This wine shows classic cool climate characters of dark black and blue fruits, pepper and spice with a floral lift from the Viognier and nice red fruits from the 25% Grenache addition. The stem inclusion added structure and extra woodsy characters. You can swirl it for hours and it keeps revealing different nuances and aspects. It’s truly a fascinating wine.

HUMBOLDT COUNTY

2009 CONFLUENCE 40% MERLOT, 28% MALBEC, 15% SYRAH, 15% CABERNET SAUVIGNON and 2% CABERNET FRANC, this year’s Confluence is sourced mostly from our neighbor’s Ishi Pishi Ranch.      2009 was an ideal year for Bordeaux varieties up here. The warm spring and gorgeous fall allowed the fruit to ripen fully, yet showcase excellent varietal characters. One barrel of Kimberly’s Syrah was added for extra dimension. Aromas of black cherry, blue fruit, and spice are pure and unadultered by oak. The Syrah adds mid palate, spice and length to the finish. Aged 23 months in mostly three year old French barrels, with 12% new Hungarian making up the balance, I couldn’t be happier with this wine.
