Description: Two thousand-eleven was yet another record cold vintage in the Russian River Valley. A wet spring was followed by a cool summer. Wet weather during bloom in June resulted in a smaller than usual crop. The smaller than usual Pinot Noir crop was able to take advantage of the only sustained ninety degree days of the season in September to accelerate their maturity. The low crop yields led to very concentrated and intense berries. The core of the Laguna West Pinot Noir bottling is clone 115 which contributes overall texture and length to the wine. Complimented by clone 777 the wine takes on layers of complexity and structure. Our vines situated west of the Laguna de Santa Rosa draw much of their character from classic Gold Ridge soils renowned to the area.
