STIRM SANTA CRUZ MOUNTAINS PINOT NOIR

$53.50

In 2016 Ryan took over farming a tiny vineyard near the mountain town of Glenwood, east of Santa Cruz. Planted in 1997, this organic two-acre plot is on a 30% grade. It is neither tilled nor irrigated. Soils here are mostly sandy loam, decomposed from lompico sandstone. This truly is a vineyard in the forest – it’s surrounded by redwoods, oak, and bay trees. After a growing season defined by cool night, the grapes were harvested in early September. Whole clusters were fermented in 1960s open-top redwood fermenter for two weeks before being pressed off into neutral oak puncheon. After 18 months, the wine was racked and bottled.
