Pinot Noir, ‘Hacienda Secoya Vyd’, Ceritas

The Deep End of Anderson Valley is renowned as an optimal growing area for cool-climate Pinot Noir, due to cool ocean air penetrating throughout the valley. Named for the surrounding redwood forest, this southwest-facing vineyard sits on an elevated bench just above the valley floor, a stone’s throw from the town of Navarro. The vines were planted in 1995 to the Pommard clone in soils that are volcanic in origin and sandstone-based, with an attractive red hue revealing the greater than average iron content. A high proportion of clay enables reliable water retention, keeping the vines hydrated throughout the growing season.

Farmed organically since it was planted, Hacienda Secoya is a monopole for Ceritas. While we are good at sharing, we are delighted to be the exclusive recipients of this fruit, which yields wine that is red fruited, light and weightless, with very fine-grained tannins.

Tasting Notes

Transparent and prism like Pinot Noir. Vibrant nose combines dark cherry, wild spices, peony blossom and fresh herbs. A savory powerful iron rich palate elevated by flavors of mocha, black raspberry and graphite. Silky tannins wrap around a beautifully balance and energetic finish. Vinified with 40% whole clusters.
