Olivet Grange Vineyard (OGV) is the Inman Family’s sensitively farmed estate vineyard - using only certified organic fertilizers and pesticides. This 10.45 acre vineyard is located at the junction of Olivet and Piner Roads amidst some of Sonoma County’s and the Russian River Valley’s most respected vineyards. Olivet Grange is located in the Russian River neighborhood known as the Santa Rosa Plain. Like our other Pinot Noirs, this wine is made without any additions of water, acid, enzymes, or tannins, and is fermented with the native yeast on the grapes and the naturally available bacteria.

The Olivet Grange Vineyard is picked more than once for still red Pinot Noir. In 2014, three separate lots of wine were made from the vineyard on different pick-dates and with varying amounts of whole clusters in the fermentations, averaging 70%. The quality of the fruit at Olivet Grange was beautiful.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This wine has a garnet hue, with aromas of rose petal, cherry, baking spice, and strawberry. On the palate, there is tart cherry, strawberry, raspberry, rhubarb, pomegranate, cherry pit, clean earth, and savory herbs. The wine is balanced with OGV's signature long finish revealing iron and mineral.
Winemaker Notes
Impact of the drought reduced yields but the quality was excellent across the board in 2014. The grapes were hand harvested at night, destemmed and fermented in a combination of 5-ton stainless steel and one ton plastic fermenters via the natural, wild yeasts. Temperatures in the fermenters were kept below 80 degrees during the primary fermentations. The cap was punched down three times each day. At the end of fermentation, the wines were basket pressed and settled overnight before being moved to French oak barrels (primarily Sirugue). The wines were kept on their fine lees and stirred regularly until they were racked and crossflow filtered immediately prior to bottling under Stelvin closures.
