These fifteen-year-old vines produce balanced fruit which results in an aromatic refined style of Pinot Noir with refreshing acidity.
Landa Vineyard - Chalk Hill
The Landa Vineyard is a beautiful little two-acre vineyard on a very steep south westerly facing hillside in the Chalk Hill area east of Healdsburg. The soil is a rocky mix of spreckels loam, river- wash, and felta gravelly loam. The steep slope combined with extremely well drained soil forces the forty year old Zinfandel vines to dig deep roots and struggle for water. This struggle creates small, intense, thick-skinned berries which in turn produce full-bodied aromatic wine. The old vine Zinfandel is planted atop St. George rootstock.
Nacimento Vineyard - Sonoma Valley
The tiny one acre Nacimento vineyard is located high up in the hills of eastern Sonoma county at 300 feet of elevation and a 15% slope. These modestly aged ten-year-old vines are planted to 337 clone Cabernet Sauvignon and produce exceptional fruit comprised of loose clusters with very small berries. The soil is primarily forward-kidd complex and laniger loam common to the Mayacama mountains and neighboring Napa County
