Our Land’s Edge Pinot Noir is sourced from two Estate owned Vineyards: our Far Coast Vineyard (just south of the town of Annapolis) and our Estate owned Seascape Vineyard (west of the town of Occidental). The name Land’s Edge is derived from the fact that the Vineyards are located high on the Sonoma Coastal Ridges that run along the Sonoma Coast’s land’s edge and the Pacific Ocean. Some call this part of the Sonoma Coast AVA the “True Sonoma Coast.” We also make single vineyard designated wines from each of the Far Coast and Seascape Vineyards. The Far Coast Vineyard is the predominant component of Land’s Edge – typically making up 90% or more of the blend. We find that the Far Coast part of the blend brings Mocha notes to the nose, and a deep black cherry profile while the Seascape Vineyard part of the blend adds savory notes along with hints of salinity to the Land’s Edge Vineyards cuvee.
Wines From This Vineyard
The only 2014 tasted was the early-bottled 2014 Pinot Noir Land’s Edge Vineyards, which comes from a vineyard four miles from the Pacific Ocean. Aged in 32% new French oak, the wine displays raspberry and blueberry fruit, damp earth, fresh porcini mushrooms and plenty of minerality. This is a juicy, tightly knit, but concentrated and promising Pinot Noir that has that forward fruit of this vintage well displayed.
