"The 2021 Pinot Noir Far Coast Vineyard pours a saturated ruby/purple color and has enveloping aromas of candied lavender, boysenberry preserve, and mentholated wooded spices. Fleshy and full-bodied, its ripe tannins build into its broad structure, with mouthwatering salinity and notes of black cherry, turned forest floor, and cedar..." - Audrey Frick, jebdunnuck.com, July 2023
Far Coast Vineyard
Wines From This Vineyard
"A ripe golden hue, the 2021 Chardonnay Far Coast Vineyard offers more broadness right away with its perfume of jasmine, ripe tropical fruit, toasted spice, and apricot. Full-bodied, with a soft, viscous texture and notes of honeyed citrus and ripe salted pineapple, it’s long on the finish, with a sunny, opulent feel. It’s approachable now or over the next 6-8 years." Audrey Frick, jebdunnuck.com, July 2023
This vintage of the Far Coast Vineyard Chardonnay exhibits aromas of orange zest, quince, yellow apple, dried fruits and spice. The flavors of tangerine, mandarin orange and quince are followed by a long textural finish with structure and minerality. Jeff Stewart & Tiaan Lordan Winemakers
Our Far Coast Vineyard is a cool site surrounded by redwood forests, almost two hours north of the Russian River on a Sonoma Coast mountain ridge. It is an area that some call the 'True Sonoma Coast'. Others would simply describe the distant vineyard site as "the middle of nowhere". Far Coast Vineyard sits just south of the Peay Vineyard at an elevation of about 900 feet above sea level. The soils at this ridge-top site are well drained and help to intensify the sense of minerality and focus in this rare single-vineyard Pinot Noir.
