The rows of Pinot Noir grapes in our Carneros vineyard stretch out across the edge of the valley.

A notoriously challenging variety, Pinot Noir prefers the foggy, wind-swept slopes of the Carneros region, in southernmost Napa Valley. Through the repeated tastings of our reserve candidates we have brought together select blocks from two renowned vineyards in the Carneros AVA: Rancho Carneros and the Hyde Vineyard.The head-trained, dry-farmed vines of Rancho Carneros are over forty years old and bring weight, depth and complexity to the blend. The clonal diversity of the Hyde Vineyard, further enhances complexity and heightens fruitiness, elegance and structure.
