A local favorite, this wine won Double Gold at the 2018 Sonoma County Harvest Fair!
The winery writes, "We strive to highlight the unique characteristics that make fruit from each vineyard, from each varied micro-climate, so very special and unique. All of our Pinot Noir is aged in French oak for 10 months. 1/3 of the barrels are new, 1/3 are one year old, and 1/3 are 2 year old. In doing so, we are able to benefit from the finesse and structure of barrel aging, while not overwhelming the varietal characteristics of Pinot Noir.
Guy tastes through and then hand selects his favorite barrels for the single vineyard bottling of the Soul Patch Pinot Noir. The remaining barrels are then used in our Russian River Valley blend.
The fermentation was conducted using native yeast in small, temperature controlled, open top fermentors. Gentle punch downs were done over a 3-4 week fermentation, after a 5-7 day cold soak. The Pinot is then pressed and transferred directly into barrel, using gravity flow."
