Marin County Pinot Noir

Marin County Pinot Noir bottle

A blend of four distinct sites throughout Marin County, the base of this cool-climate Pinot Noir is from two mature vineyards in the northernmost reaches of the Marin County appellation that border the Petaluma Gap: the Stubbs and Corda Vineyards. Despite their similar locales, they provide very different flavor profiles; the coolerStubbs Vineyard provides a lacy texture and floral aromatics while the Corda Vineyard provides a warmer-climate, red berry core surrounded by more burly tannins. As counterpoints to these more mature vineyard selections, the newer Azaya Vineyard is perfectly situated and destined for greatness; the spice and perfume along with its delicate texture provide lift to the overall blend. The final element to the blend is a vineyard off of Lucas Valley Road whose hilltop exposure provides a tannic density and power to drive the finish of the wine.
