Ratings
92+ Points - Wine Advocate. "Pale ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Pinot Noir Clary Ranch Vineyard has quite an earthy/savory nose of sautéed herbs, garrigue, mossy bark and charcuterie with a core of red currants, cherries and dried leaves. The light to medium-bodied palate features great intensity with a firm, chewy frame and wonderful freshness, finishing long and earthy. This needs a good 3-4 years in bottle. 100 cases were made."
Winemaker Notes
The 2015 Clary Ranch Pinot Noir is highly pitched and starts off with understated aromas of Asian spice, autumn leaves, and black plum. The flavors are vivid etchings of black cherry, raspberry reduction, and freshly foraged mushrooms. The package is trim, elegant, and focused without a hint of extra fat. A truly elegant wine well-suited for a quiet moment of reflection.

Vineyard Notes
The Northern section of the California Coastal Range starts in Humboldt County, running down through Mendocinoand the Sonoma Coast until Bodega Bay. The impact of the chilly Pacific airflow into most of Sonoma County is buffered by the mountains, allowing for a diverse range of agricultural activity. Right around Bodega Bay, the range subsides significantly, creating a west to-east channel for the maritime air, known as the Petaluma Wind Gap. Clary Ranch is in the heart of this area, sitting on a hillside in the middle of Two Rock Valley about five miles west of the town of Petaluma. In this marginal zone, it can be difficult to ripen grapes, but the reward for those that do is thrilling. The vineyard is planted to both Syrah and Pinot Noir.
