Pinot Noir, the grape in France’s esteemed red Burgundies, manages to humble vintners year after year. In the wrong site, it yields insipid wines that lack aroma, color and flavor. In the right site, it can make wines with the perfume of sun-warmed raspberries and a texture of a baby in velvet pajamas. Not much separates our 556-acre Henry Ranch, in the southern Napa Valley, from San Pablo Bay but a 700-foot hill. So there is massive maritime intrusion every day which creates a perfect climate for Pinot Noir. Here the grapes grow in a low spot along Carneros Creek, which provides further tempering as the cool night air lingers longer into our warm days. The area's longer growing season allows the fruit to hang on the vine longer, typically until mid-September until the grapes aren’t just technically mature but are actually fully ripe. This combination makes for a very Burgundian Pinot Noir.

I just love this Pinot Noir! I ordered a 1/2 case and wish I had ordered more because all my neighbors love it too and it is going fast! Please let me know when it will be on sale.

We opened the first bottle last night and the remaining two were consumed before I knew it! Excellent Pinot indeed! Let me know when it goes on sale and mark me down for a case!
