About the Wine

We’re excited to release our sixth vintage of Pinot Noir from our Hop Kiln Estate. With three unique soil types, the grapes from this vineyard produce the famous plush and rich style of Pinot Noir of this region. Harvested from a truly landmark vineyard located on the coveted Westside Road in the Russian River Valley, this unique bottle also features the iconic and historical stone hop kilns, which the California Heritage Society have named a historical landmark.

Tasting Notes

Varietal Composition

  • % Pinot Noir




Pale ruby core with violet inflections and moderate tears on the glass.


Aromatic with a medley of ripe raspberry, strawberry, and black cherry leading to subtle notes of portobello mushroom, rose petal, clove and anise.


The palate reinforces the nose with red fruit and savory elements while the wine's vibrant acidity and velvety tannins culminate in a lingering finish with sustained fruit, vanilla bean, hibiscus, and rhubarb tart.
