Pinot Noir 2022

100% Pinot noir · Dry Farmed • Hawkeye Ranch • Redwood Valley • 98 cases

Sidle up to aromas of breakfast tea and orange peels drying in the sun. Planted in the 1960’s, these dry-farmed vines show us what’s possible with Mendocino fruit. This particular Pinot is the perfect companion for whittling small gifts from birch bark, getting past the small talk, and processing your plum harvest.

Enjoy With

No need to reinvent the wheel. Try classic dishes like prosciutto-wrapped pork tenderloin, anything with mushrooms, or stew over the stove for a while with oeufs en meurette. This bottle cuts through the fat with finesse and a loosely woven tannin.

Drink When

You want to warm the hearth with old school California charm. Enchanting acidity keeps it real in the kitchen and the conversation.

Martha's Notes

Pete Johnson’s vineyard pocket in Redwood Valley continues to amaze me. In contrast to our warm and windy vineyards closer to Ukiah, Pete’s Hawkeye Ranch (and nearby Dicesare Vineyard) showcase this area’s dramatic daily temperature inversion, where cool overnight air pools from the mountain slopes into the rolling valley vineyards and provides daily relief, often in excessive of +/- 30 degrees Fahrenheit. Dry farming reduces yield and results in wines that have just the right amount of concentration, even at relatively lower extraction. Our 1960s-era Pinot noir from Hawkeye Ranch is a wine that brings ample California sunshine with restraint.
