Situated south of Napa and Sonoma, and just north of the San Pablo Bay, the Carneros
appellation is directly influenced by the fog and cool breezes that come off of the Bay. This
cooling effect results in Carneros being much cooler than its northern neighbors, Napa and
Sonoma, and an ideal location for cooler climate varietals like Pinot Noir. Our Pinot Noir is
comprised of Clones 115, 2A, and Pommard; this variety allows us to capture the more elegant
side of a traditionally “finnicky” varietal.
TASTING & PAIRING
