These last few vintages we have been showing wine lovers the differences between our esteemed
single vineyard Pinot Noirs, but occasionally, the sum is greater than the individual parts. With
our 2017 vintage, winemaker Kathleen Inman has once again gone against the grain by making this special blend of Russian River Valley Pinot Noir from three of the most highly regarded vineyards in the area, OGV,
Vine Hill, and Sexton Road Ranch, to create this earthy, fruity, and balanced Russian River Valley
Pinot Noir.

Beginning with our estate property, Olivet Grange Vineyard (OGV) located in the Santa Rosa Plain,
this fruit lends its signiture minerality and backbone of acidity to the blend. We find delicate
raspberry from the Vine Hill property, located just two miles from our estate in the Laguna Ridge
neighborhood, boasting Goldridge Soil, with excellent drainage and suitcase clones from
Burgundy. Lastly, soft tannin and bold fruit shine through the mid palate from our higher
elevation vineyard on the Sonoma Coast, Sexton Road Ranch. By blending these distinct
vineyards, after small lot fermentation with native yeasts, we found complexity and elegence in
this solid representation of the Russian River.

Production
The wine was fermented on our estate in small one ton ferment batches. Following natural wild fermentation, the wine was 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 settled for bottling under screwcap. 678 cases produced
