"This incredibly fragrant Pinot Noir expresses notes of cherry blossoms, conifer, black cherry and a subtle hint of bay leaves. Its silky mouthful begins with wild raspberry, and finishes with tangerine oil, and cranberry. This wine retains the mouthwatering acidity of its cool climate fruit that’s perfectly balanced with supple tannins, both of which contribute to a beautifully balanced wine with an elegant finish.
Greg has been working with the Hawk Hill Vineyard for over 13 years. This Vineyard is located on a Southern facing Ridge top, high above the town of Freestone and was planted to Pinot noir and Chardonnay in 1985. There are 6 acres of Pinot Noir vines equally distributed between Pommard 4 and Dijon 115 Clones. The fruit was harvested by hand, at night, to assure it would arrive at the winery cold." - Winery
"Post-graduation, Greg embarked on a six year wine adventure living and working in the Mendoza area of Argentina where he performed viticultural research for area growers, and assisted both the Catena Family and Kendall Jackson Wineries on vineyard development projects.
Upon his return to the US, Greg worked in the Napa Valley with Stag's Leap Wine Cellars before being drawn back to the Sonoma Coast to work with Red Car, Flowers Vineyard and Winery, leading the development of their coastal properties.
For the last 12 years Greg runs his own consulting business and is proud to have an outstanding list of winery and vineyard clients ." - Importer
