Situated on a narrow ridgetop at the northernmost tip of the Anderson Valley, The Narrows Vineyard is a historic mountain ranch planted with mature Pinot Noir vines. A mere 10 miles from the rugged Mendocino Coast, our low-yielding hillside vineyard is affected by strong marine influences that produce summer fog and cooler daytime temperatures. These extreme conditions provide the perfect setting for growing grapes of great intensity, resulting in a complex Pinot Noir of depth that embodies the vineyard’s wild beauty and natural intensity.

Wine Profile

Production Notes
Varietal Content: 100% Pinot Noir; Cooperage: 100% New Vintage French oak; Medium toast: Allier, Vosges and Tronçais Forests
Winemaker Notes
At first demure, it slowly reveals its charms with layers of sweet chanterelle and porcini mushrooms, notes of forest floor, leather and black tea, and cool, red fruit flavors of cranberry, wild strawberry and rhubarb.
Production
In 2007, a dry winter led to even growth and manageable canopies. The summer was cool, and lacked any major heat spells until just before Labor Day when we began the first of four “mini-harvests.” These mini-harvests allowed us to pick at ideal ripeness over a seven-week period. Although the crop was lighter than expected, the quality was excellent. While each mini-harvest offered fruit with its own personality, there is a lovely consistency to the dark, well-extracted and structured nature of the wines.
