2015 Zero New Oak Pinot Noir   

The "Zero New Oak" bottling is our most traditional wine in its use of all older French oak barrels. Yet, for the California wine market, it's a bit anti-establishment to produce a Pinot Noir that focuses only on the purity of our estate-grown fruit, without any oak to mask the expression of our site.

This wine was grown and crafted by our family, on our five-generation estate. It was fermented with wild yeast and wild ML with 20% whole clusters, then bottled unfined and unfiltered. Full of beautiful cherry/berry fruit, this is an elegant wine that pairs with almost any cuisine.
