A gem from a hidden California valley, this Pinot Noir unveils the secrets of the remote Cienega AVA.

Vineyard: Nestled amidst the rugged mountains of San Benito County, the Joaquinite Vineyard rests on limestone-rich soils, infusing the grapes with intense flavors and vibrant acidity. Organic and biodynamic farming practices nurture the vines, allowing their unique character to shine through.

Winemaking: Hand-harvested grapes undergo whole-cluster fermentation with native yeasts, gently coaxing out the purest expression of the terroir. Minimal intervention throughout the process preserves the delicate fruit and vibrant acidity.

Tasting Notes: Dive into a tapestry of aromas - juicy raspberries and ripe cherries mingle with earthy notes and hints of baking spice. On the palate, a burst of red fruit dances with vibrant acidity, leading to a long, elegant finish with delicate tannins and whispers of forest floor.

Varietal: 100% Pinot Noir

AVA: Cienega Valley, California

Production: Limited quantities, handcrafted with meticulous attention to detail.
