2014 Estate "Field Selections" Pinot Noir


2014 Estate Field Selections Pinot Noir from Drew Family Cellars

This is our inaugural release from our estate site located 3.3 miles from the ocean, 1,250 feet in elevation on a south slope on the edge of the coastal ridges that are Mendocino Ridge appellation. The site was carefully chosen after years of research. The climate and soils are about as ideal as one could find for a Pinot Noir vineyard. Ancient ocean floor soils of decomposed sandstone and shale, high in iron and quartzite with a perfect ratio of sand, gravelly loam and clay. Marginal fertility combined with excellent water holding capacity and good drainage makes for an extremely compelling site. To say that we are pleased with our first release from our estate ranch would be an understatement.
