2020 Pinot Noir, Duvarita 750ML

 Duvarita Vineyard, just west of the Santa Rita Hills appellation lies on south-facing slopes of almost pure sand. The grapes here are farmed biodynamically. The low vigor soils, small canopy, and a low fruit zone combine to make this one of the lowest yielding and earliest ripening vineyards we farm. The small clusters here give wines that are lean and elegant, with terrific intensity, minerality and a remarkable depth of flavor even at lower alcohol levels.

The 2020 was another low yielding year at Duvarita. Yields were limited by uneven set and the cool vintage meant that the grapes were not ready to be harvested when we were pummeled with a mid-August heat wave, which caused some dehydration as well. The very small crop we did harvest though had remarkably good acidity and concentration. The wine was aged on its lees for 16 months in French oak barrels (25% new) and bottled unfiltered.

Extremely Limited. Only 190 cases produced.
