Wine Profile
Ratings
90 Points - Wine Spectator. "Fresh cherry and dried raspberry flavors show a lot of cedar spice accents in this red, with a firm, minerally finish that has plenty of toasty notes. Drink now through 2023. 1,000 cases made."—K.M.
Vineyard Notes
Our 45 acre Trenton Road Vineyard is located in the Russian River Valley AVA of Sonoma County. Planted to a variety of Pinot Noir clones including Pommard, 37 and Swan, this vineyard is ideally situated to benefit from morning fog and afternoon sunshine. Grapes were harvested on September 28, 2018.
Production Notes
The 2018 growing season was one of the most consistent in recent memory. Mild spring weather led to prime fruit set and ideal growing conditions to set the stage for producing the perfect Pinot Noir. The temperate weather allowed for an extended hang-time and fully balanced ripening.
Winemaker Notes
Introducing The Cusp Pinot Noir: it opens with a complex perfume of clove spice, cherry, raspberry, tobacco leaf and chocolate. On the palate, luscious black cherry and notes of cranberry flow with supple texture and integrated tannins into a smooth, lingering finish. Swirl, sniff, swallow, and repeat.
