In 2017, the unusually wet cool spring delayed flowering, setting the stage for a later harvest.  The summer was hot, followed by a mild September with few days of rain prior to harvest.  This refreshed the vines and maintained the balance of the fruit.  We started harvesting our fruit on September 19th and we were done harvesting mid-October.   The  fruit was perfectly ripe with great concentration, complexity and  beautiful aromatics.   The resulting wines are dark with gorgeous aromas, ripe rich fruit, great structure and aging potential.  Some of the best wines I ever made. Delicious!

Enjoy!

2017 MEMOIRS PINOT NOIR

Memoirs is my fond personal tribute to my family.  This year’s label features a picture of  parents at my uncle’s house in the early 70’s. The 2017 Memoirs is a blend of Pinot Noir crafted from all the vineyards I source my fruit from.

This is the second release from Anonimo Vineyard, a new vineyard I planted on a great site that I leased in Dundee Hills located near my Estate Vineyard. The four acres lot was planted with nine different clones of Pinot Noir which gives this wine it’s beautiful complexity.
