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 malolactic bacteria.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This wine is deep garnet in color, with aromas of rose petal, cherry, baking spice, and strawberry. On the palate, there is tart cherry, strawberry, raspberry, rhubarb, pomegranate, black tea, and savory herbs. The wine is balanced with OGV's signature long finish revealing iron and mineral.
Winemaker Notes
This is the smallest vintage of OGV Estate Pinot Noir produced to date. Due to excessive rain during the bloom period, the crop was down 60%. Nonetheless, this wine is delicious and distinct, with excellent potential for longterm aging. The grapes were hand harvested at night, destemmed, and fermented in a combination of five-ton stainless steel fermenter, one-ton plastic fermenters, and a concrete egg, whom we fondly call Rosie, 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 Sirugue oak barrels. 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.

We enjoyed a bottle of the 2015 OGV Estate Pinot Noir last night. Fantastic!! Funny story. My girlfriend and I were enjoying dinner, wine, and great conversation. We were not discussing the wine until we got to the final pour from the bottle. I usually get a full pour at the end of the bottle. Not last night. Come to find out, we both thought it was one of the best wines we have had. Kathleen, Thanks for your hard work. We are looking forward to our next visit to the Inman Family Winery.

Inman Family OGV Estate Pinot Noir 2015 ($73). We just love the wines from Kathy Inman because they are so well balanced. Even this reserve from Olivet Grange Vineyard isn’t overblown with extracted, bold fruit like so many pinots. Instead, it is refined with red berry notes, that umami character and hints of pomegranate and herbs. Very long finish with a dash of mineral.
