Harnessing all of the vibrant energy of the SCRIBE Estate Pinot Noir vineyard on the southwest-facing slope of Arrowhead Mountain in the southern Mayacamas Volcanic Range. Handled gently in the cellar with native yeast fermentation, aged in neutral oak and bottled unfiltered, the Estate Pinot Noir is a wine distinctly tied to our small piece of Sonoma. It is powerful and pure. Clones 667, Swa, Pommard, Chalone, Mt. Eden, and Wadenswil are planted in volcanic tuff and Huichica Loam.

2021 meteorological data: A dry winter with below-average rainfall and a cool start to spring kept the vines dormant late into March. The spring months stayed dry and cool, slowing shoot growth and contributing to low yields and small berries. Once under full canopy later in the season, the fruit developed evenly with concentrated flavor, color and texture. Harvest began on August 13th with favorable, temperate weather throughout the picking season.
