Pinot Noir, 'Home Field: Fort Ross-Seaview', RAEN

The Home Field Vineyard Pinot Noir grows in the Fort Ross-Seaview AVA on the Western Sonoma Coast overlooking the Pacific Ocean just north of Jenner. The weather is cool creating an environment where the grapes struggle to mature within the growing season. On summer mornings, these vines sit just above the fog line allowing their foliage to photosynthesize. The afternoon sun warms the canopy and slowly ripens the fruit. The vineyard sits at 1,200 ft. elevation with southeast exposure and well-drained, decomposing, iron-rich sandstone soil. The vineyard is planted to clone 777. The wine ferments with native yeast and 65% whole clusters and then is aged for 10 months in 60 gallon French barrels with no new oak. 13% ABV.
