In 1989, we selected a site – today known as Home Block Vineyard – that set the stage for the Pinot Noir grape to truly shine. We had a hunch that the vineyard was special and with each passing vintage we’ve been delighted to confirm our theory. The combination of soils, varied elevation and the moderating effect of the lake produces deeply complex wines with fruit-forward character.

Blackberries, raspberries, mushrooms and cooking herbs – structured palate with a long persistent finish.
2019 was up until September, near picture perfect. Warm days, but not too warm, cool nights, but not too cool, set the ripening process on a trajectory of ideal balance. With September came cool weather and some rainfall, but with careful attention to sorting and managing harvest dates, we feel our hard work paid off with wines of ideal balance and intense fruit character. In particular, the lively acidities have produced wines which are bright and fresh.
