Pinot Noir

  • 2011 Allen Vineyard Pinot Noir

    Release Date: Fall 2013

    Release Price: $82

    Cherry and strawberry jam permeates on the nose along with secondary aromas of violets, clove and cherry-cola. This is a weightier wine than in the past (vines were planted in 1970), with vibrant acidity and soft, rich tannins. Flavors of ripe strawberries, cherry pie, citrus blossom and spice are complimented by the toasty vanilla/crème brûlée-like texture. READ MORE »

  • 2011 Bucher Vineyard Pinot Noir

    Release Date: Fall 2013

    Release Price: $59

    Newer clones, like Mt. Eden and Swan, are now incorporated into this site blend. The aromas of Bing cherries, forest floor, root beer and smoky tarragon come through on the nose.

  • 2011 Burt Williams’ Morning Dew Ranch Pinot Noir

    Release Date: Fall 2013

    Release Price: $75

    Our second vintage from this cooler site within the Anderson Valley, the wine exhibits notes of pie cherries, fennel, fresh cardamom and toasted vanilla beans. Vibrant strawberry flavors and supple tannins fill your mouth with a long, silky finish. Yields were quite low in 2011 and the wine exhibits true site expression with added finesse. The juicy acidity only adds to its age-ability. READ MORE »

  • 2011 Calegari Vineyard Pinot Noir

    Release Date: Fall 2013

    Release Price: $57

    Another new single-vineyard wine that had been going into the Eastside Road Neighbors since 2008. A very aromatic wine that is composed primarily of Dijon clones 777 & 115, with a small amount of Swan in the blend. Bright cherry fruits, fennel and star jasmine radiate in the aroma of this wine. Concentrated raspberry and cherry fruits, anise and toasted vanilla beans coat the palate along with rich, supple tannins. A more fruit-forward wine that is worth aging for 4-6 years.

    Release Price: $59

    Very intense aromas of wild raspberry, mineral, root beer and Asian spices fill your glass.
