2017 Sonoma Mountain Pinot Noir
The Ashton Vineyard is on the eastern slope of Sonoma Mountain, where morning fog and cool evening air moderate the warm summer days of Sonoma. This dry farmed, forty-year-old vineyard planted to 7 Pinot Noir clones, produces less than two tons per acre.
We farm sustainably without pesticides or herbicides. Winemaking techniques are state of the art, including triple hand-sorted whole berry fermentation on native and multiple cultures of select yeast. A barrel program using artisan French coopers created additional layers of complexity. The fully vine-ripened fruit flavors are intense, with a full-bodied character, while retaining subtleties and femininity we enjoy in great Pinots. Our Pinot Noir has a bit of spice in the middle and a lingering finish.
We have received many awards for our Ashton Vineyard Pinot Noir.
