Of all our Pinot Noirs, Ferrington Vineyard is always the most elegant and red fruit driven. Aromatics of mountain strawberry, crushed raspberry, and blood orange practically leap from the glass. Hints of mint, and orange peel add further depth to the nose. The mouth is full of more red fruit flavors including raspberry, red currant, and pomegranate. Notes of clove and cinnamon layer on complexity while the refreshing acidity and delicate tannins make this elegant wine a versatile pairing with all but the heaviest dishes. - Ryan Hodgins, Winemaker

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The vaunted Ferrington Vineyard is located just outside the town of Boonville, an area of Anderson Valley that is more protected from the maritime breeze, giving the wine from Ferrington a classically fruit-driven and opulent Pinot Noir character. This wine is made of a blend of Pommard, W├Ądenswil, and the Dijon clones 115, 777, and 828.
Production Notes
After a wet winter, the 2019 growing season started with a pleasant spring and lots of sunshine. We were fortunate to have almost no frosty nights following budbreak, but a major rainstorm in late May just as bloom was beginning was a major cause for concern. Once we got into fruit-set (the first time when we can judge the success of pollination), it was clear that our worries were for naught and we had an abundant crop. The summer was warm and even, virtually without heat spikes until a few warm days in late August pushed ripening along. Harvest began at the beginning of September and extended through early October. The wines of the 2019 vintage have bright fruit and a refreshing purity of flavor.
Winemaker Notes
Of all our Pinot Noirs, Ferrington Vineyard is always the most elegant and red fruit driven. Aromatics of mountain strawberry, crushed raspberry, and blood orange practically leap from the glass. Hints of mint, sun tea, and orange peel add further depth to the nose. The mouth is full of more red fruit flavors including raspberry, red currant, and pomegranate. Notes of clove and cinnamon layer on complexity while the refreshing acidity and delicate tannins make this elegant wine a versatile pairing with all but the heaviest dishes. - Ryan Hodgins, Winemaker
