The Sonoma Mountain Pinot Noir hails from the Van Der Kamp Vineyard, 1500 ft up on the western face of Sonoma Mountain. Originally planted in 1952, these vines have been farmed organically since 2017. The vineyard sits on Spreckels Loam soil interlaced with volcanic tufa and we harvested blocks of La Tache clone and UCD 23 for this bottling. The wine was aged in 100% neutral oak barrels.
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.
soil type: Spreckels Loam soil, volcanic tuff
