ABEL VINEYARD 
PINOT NOIR

2020 Abel Vineyard Pinot Noir | Anderson Valley

The sustainably farmed Abel vineyard sits in the "Deep End" of Anderson Valley. This vineyard is extra special to our winemaker, as he helped plant it over two decades ago from some of his favorite French clones.

Extreme coastal influence and ancient dried river beds combine to create a growing climate for excellent Pinot Noir.

The fruit is able to gain extra hang time as it ripens but due to the cool temps, sugars (thus alcohol) remain low.

 

This is our first single vineyard Pinot. It's a true expression of this specific terroir. A delicious and complex wine that will appreciate some age.

Vineyard Notes:

The light sandy well drained soils consistently produce a high-toned aromatic wine with savory earthy notes to the beet root, rhubarb, and crush red fruit flavors.
