Composed of Pinot Noir from two vineyards on opposite ends of the Dundee Hills AVA: 60% of the fruit came from Anderson Family Vineyard and 40% from Vista Hills Vineyard. At 550 feet, Anderson Vineyard faces northeast, which is atypical for Dundee. The soils in this vineyard are thinner than most found in Dundee, resulting in more intensity but less of the jammy qualities than one would expect. Vista Hills is one of the highest vineyards in Dundee at 750 feet. The soils here are predominantly Jory and the vineyard faces southwest, catching the hot afternoon sun.

Winemaker Notes
The grapes were picked in late September, 2014: Anderson Family Vineyard on September 17th and Vista Hills Vineyard on September 22nd. Grapes were sorted and mostly destemmed; 40% of the grapes went into the fermenter whole cluster. After a five-day cold soak, fermentation began spontaneously. The fermentation lasted for 12 - 14 days with the cap being manually punched down twice a day. It was barrel aged for 18 months in barrel: 25% new, 25% once used, 50% in barrels used three years or more.
