2008 Windsor Oaks Vineyard Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley
2008 is the second year we have produced a small lot of vineyard-designate wine from Windsor Oaks. The vineyard is located in Windsor, CA and benefits from blankets of morning coastal fog tempering lengthy afternoon sun exposure.
Clones 115 and 777 were co-fermented in 2008. The 115 block has rocky well-draining soils causing the vines to be highly stressed and low-yielding, resulting in a concentrated well-structured wine. The 777 provides luscious texture, deep color, and layers of spice and intense dark cherry flavor components.
