The Cusp fully embraces the tension between Russian River fog and Sonoma sunshine. A proudly new-world Pinot, with a full, round body; beautifully balanced and unexpectedly complex.

Winemaker Notes

Aromas of concentrated bing cherry pie filling and bright cranberry are interwoven with soft vanilla, baking spices, spun sugar and a hint of gently worn leather. Bright bing cherry flavors on the front palate are balanced by a weightier yet elegant mid palate, which leads to a lingering, mouthwatering finish.

Production Notes

Clones: Mt. Eden 37, Pommard and Swan The 2019 harvest started 1-2 weeks later than usual. A wet winter and spring followed by persistent cool temperatures extended the growing season, allowing the grapes to mature gradually, resulting in wines with good fruit concentration, strong acidity and depth.

Vineyard Notes

Our Trenton Road Vineyard is located in the Russian River Valley AVA of Sonoma County, and ideally situated to benefit from morning fog and afternoon sunshine. From the vineyard's 45 acres, we selected fruit from just four blocks (Old Barn, Richard's Crown, Richard's South and Kashia) which was hand-picked between September 11-28, 2019.
