Rare, Single-Vineyard Pinot
GRAPE: 100% Pinot Noir
FUNDAMENTALS: 100% whole cluster. Native yeast, Aged in neutral French oak barrels. Unfined, unfiltered. A mere eight barrels made.
VINEYARDS: The Raen Bodega vineyard is steep, raw and powerful. It lies just east of Bodega Bay between the villages of Freestone and Occidental. This westerly planting is one of the oldest meter-by-meter plantings of pinot noir on the Sonoma Coast.
PROFILE: Notes of rose petals and black tea. Richly textural, with upfront elements of wild strawberry, burnt orange pith, exotic spice box, and forest floor - followed and dark berry on the wonderfully long, persistent finish.
