The vineyard sits just above the tidal marshes that flow into San Pablo Bay (which sits above the San Francisco Bay). Most afternoons during the growing season the warm to hot temperatures farther north in the Napa Valley act like a magnet drawing the cool breezes and fog from the bay. These cooling temperatures will began to bring relief to the vines in the afternoon and often not roll out until mid-morning the next day. This cooling blanket creates an ideal environment for the Stanly Ranch Pinot Noir to develop the spicy aromatics and complex black cherry.
Dusty notes accent the concentrated flavors of hot stone and Asian spice in this rich, savory version. Mushroom and forest floor elements extend on the finish, with details of cocoa powder. Drink now through 2023. 390 cases made.
