Located in the Sebastopol Hills at around 900 feet in elevation, this Sonoma Coast vineyard selection of Pommard, 777, and 23 clones has yielded a rich, seductive Pinot Noir with dark fruits and exotic spices. The vineyard is approximately 9 miles from the Pacific Ocean. It is planted on steep hillsides of Goldridge soil.

Farmed by highly regarded grower Jim Pratt, Inman Family’s winemaker Kathleen Inman wanted to make wine from this site for many years. In 2013, she secured the first fruit from this lovely vineyard perched above Freestone. This area of Sonoma County can be labeled either Russian River Valley or Sonoma Coast. The luscious, dark, concentrated fruit and racy acidity combines with the generous tannins to create an age-worthy structure.

Pratt's Sexton Road Ranch is not far from the Klopp's Thorn Ridge Ranch, which Inman sourced from between 2006-2012. It is adjacent to Littorai's Haven and Balletto's Sexton Hill ranches.

Inman Sexton Road Pinot Noir 2016, 13.7%: The pleasing herbal notes stitched together with soft raspberry/cherry and a bit of black tea make this wine both mouthwatering and delicate, and the tannins are just right. The Sexton Road vineyard sits just nine miles from the Pacific so the fruit enjoys a long, cool ripening season. Forbes, "Seven Delicious Lower-Alcohol Red Wines for Summer Drinking". 1 August 2019
