Our Blanc de Noir is a sparkling wine made from Pinot Noir grapes from Rancho La Vina, Sanford & Benedict Vineyards in Sta. Rita Hills. The cool climate fruit retains excellent acid balance at harvest, which was done by hand in early August.

In the winery, we use only the ‘Free Run’ or first juice to minimize color pickup in the wine. The juice is then racked to old French oak barrels for primary fermentation and aging. The base wine was aged in oak for eight months with almost no sulphur dioxide added. We also stir lees during the first few months of elevage to build texture and complexity.

We employ the traditional Champagne Method for our sparkling wines and this wine was en tirage or aged on lees in bottle for about 4 years before disgorging in December 2022. The resulting wine is complex and elegant, with finesse and terrific, lively effervescence.

Our 2015 Blanc de Noir is a treat to smell with pale strawberry, yeasty hazelnut, and brioche aromas. The palate is harmoniously well-balanced and full-bodied. Initial flavors of strawberries and lemons prevail, however these give way to yeasty flavors of butter and almond. There is an overall impression of delicious complexity. The finish is vibrant and long.
