Deep gem-like color reminiscent of cuprite, in depth and brilliance. Earth, minerals and red fruit carry the nose forward to taste, almost like incense. It’s gentle on entry, sophisticated and elegant. Fills the mouth with red fruit, pomegranate and plum, but with an earthy and mineral undertone. Finishes long with white pepper and lingering fruit notes.

Halleck Vineyard

Sonoma Coast, California

The vineyard is in the hills above Bennett Valley, still in the Sonoma Coast AVA. The vineyard is exposed to long afternoons of sunshine as it often sits just above the fog line. The Dijon Clone 828 is a specific variety of Pinot Noir from a specific vineyard. It’s the newest Dijon clone, introduced into the United States in 2000. We made the first vintage of this clone in 2006 from a vineyard from which we “borrowed” the fruit. It inspired us to find source for one of the finest expressions of Pinot Noir we’ve yet to encounter.

Fermentation Method: Grapes were picked before sunrise, hand-sorted and destemmed then cold-soaked for five days before going through whole berry fermentation and receiving two punch-downs per day. Fermentation took approximately 12-16 days in an open top five-ton fermentation tank and the wine was then racked to barrels.

Barrel Program: 30% new French Oak, 30% one-year-old French Oak and 40% older. Wine remained in barrel for ten months with one racking at five months during blending.
