Made with grapes from grapes grown at Le Bon Climat, Runway, and Bien Nacido vineyards.

Au Bon Climat's winemaking has changed little in 35 years; they are still making handcrafted wines using the same basic, time proven techniques. No short cuts here. They use only François Frères french oak barrels – not cheap, but essential to meet their criteria – aging about 20 months in barrel. The cocoa and char from the barrels mixes nicely with the spicy cranberry/strawberry notes so typical of Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir.

Though enjoyable now, the wine will continue to develop and be enhanced by age.
