A notoriously challenging variety, Pinot Noir prefers the foggy, wind-swept slopes of the Carneros region in southernmost Napa Valley where the climate helps to retain the aromatic complexity of the grape and bright acidity while advancing flavor development. We selected blocks from the renowned Rancho Carneros vineyard where the wonderfully gnarled, head-trained, dry farmed vines bring weight, depth, and complexity to the wine.

Pts. JebDunnuck.com "The 2018 Pinot Noir Reserve comes from the Hyde and Rancho Vineyards and was mostly destemmed. It has a beautiful array of wild strawberry and framboise-like fruits as well as lots of floral nuances. Lively, medium-bodied, beautifully balanced, and shinning for its purity as well as complexity, it's another serious wine from this team that offers incredible quality." - Jeb Dunnuck, JebDunnuck.com, August 2021
