Native 9
2017 Pinot Noir
Rancho Ontiveros Vineyard
Santa Maria Valley,
Santa Barbara

Winery Tasting Notes:

The 2017 Pinot Noir Rancho Ontiveros Vineyard is forward and luscious. Succulent red cherry, cedar, tobacco, dried flowers, licorice, mint and a dollop of new oak come together in a racy, impeccably balanced Pinot. This is the first vintage that incorporates Francois Freres barrels, and also to see a reduction in whole clusters from 100% to 50-60%. At the same time, winemaker Justin Willet has backed off on heavier extractions that defined the wines prior to his arrival. Those choices yield a Pinot that deftly balanced richness awith restraint.

Clones: 113, 114, 115, Benedict, 1A, 2A, Swan, Pommard 5

Ancien Wines
2019 Pinot Noir
Carneros, Napa Valley

Winery Tasting Notes:

The 2019 exhibits the expected mouthcoating texture that sets our Carneros Pinot Noir apart. In its youth is skews more to the spicy end of the spectrum with currants, orange spice and cocoa. Dark cherry and wild berry notes open with time in the glass and characteristic notes of anise. Subtle earth notes, hummus and truffles add interest as well as exotic hibiscus nuances. It is concentrated on the palate, exhibiting the structure of the vintage. The wine finishes long and savory inviting the next sip.
