2017 Home Block Pinot Noir
This wine exudes that deep, fruity, rose fragrance, which pairs so beautifully with the smells of cooking on the grill. It is an explosion of fresh blackberries and raspberries that lingers on and on in the finish.

TASTING NOTES

By nose: Burnt orange peel, roasting herbs and preserved plums. By mouth: Soft tannins, a
complex mix of fresh berries and dried and preserved fruit with some anise and cassis.


VINEYARD NOTES

“Home” comes from the 3-acre individual vineyard block next to Audrey and Barry Sterling’s home, which also happens to be the most sheltered vineyard block on the property. The yields in 2017 were sadly on the low side. Total production shy of 17,000 cases, compared with an average of 24,000 cases. The vintage will also be remembered for the October wildfires.


WINEMAKER NOTES

Hand picked from a single three acre block, planted to the Calera clone, the grapes are destemmed
into small open-top half ton macro bin fermenters and cold-soaked (using dry ice). Before fermentation is complete, the new wine is gently pressed from the skins and transferred to French oak barrels.
