Initially thought to be the analogous of the legacy Block 1 blend, we endeavored to make our first vintage of what is our flagship Pinot noir, 2021 As One, to be a true reflection of our vineyard. As such, we took fruit from our volcanic Jory soil, marine sedimentary soil, and our wind-blown loess soil to blend what we think evokes the essence of Compris, included and understood. A warm, but not overly hot vintage allowing us fruit that showcased its terrior as having the ability to be structured and graceful at the same time. ~Dru Allen
A Pinot noir that greets with earthy notes and subtle fruitiness, unveiling damp earth, Damson plum, leather, and a hint of cedar on the nose. As you sip, fresh cherry takes center stage, held by firm, upright tannins that mellow into ripe Bing cherries. The finish is refreshingly elegant, clean, and smooth.
