For more than a decade, I have been devoted to showcasing small lot Pinot Noir and Chardonnay exclusively from a particular sliver of the Sonoma Coast that lies 7-10 miles from the Pacific Ocean and is heavily influenced by the coastal marine weather. Known for its cool conditions and windy roads leading to remote coastal vineyards, the Sonoma Coast offers the perfect canvas for crafting the style of wines that I have always gravitated towards: Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that is complex and vibrant with elegant acidity; wines that drink well when young, but also age gracefully; wines that effortlessly showcase their site and vintage conditions. Each site has a special fingerprint that I try to capture and express.
