English Hill Vineyard grows at the southwest edge of Sebastopol Hills, surrounded by expansive pasture and rangeland. Overlooking Russian River Valley and the Marin Coast, weather swings wildly between continental and maritime influences.
The 2013 Pinot Noir harvest at English Hill took place from September 9th to 20th, yielding 2.79 tons per acre. This bottling is a barrel selection from four clones in the vineyard: Dijon 115 & 667, Vosne Romanée and Calera, harvested and fermented separately, then aged 25 months in seasoned French Oak barrels. Notes: Broad in expression and brick-hued with earthen, fermented aromas: mushroom, fennel, cola and fresh alfalfa meet coriander, cherry, strawberry fruit and cut grasses on the palate. A fine texture with grippy, enduring tannins.
