Description

Our single vineyard and small lot releases enable us to deliver some of our finest expressions of Pinot Noir by concentrating on specific vineyards, clonal selections or techniques. Named after Fess' daughter, Ashley, this hillside vineyard site sits only 12 miles from the cold Pacific Ocean with sandy, low vigor soils; a perfect scenario for Pinot Noir.

Bright cherry, strawberry and cranberry fruit flavors interwoven with layers of spice, clove, toast and earthy notes. Big yet polished, this Pinot Noir can be enjoyed now or cellared for 4-7 years. Enjoy!

Wine Critic Reviews
"...It sports a medium ruby hue to go with a smoky, earthy, spicy bouquet that includes plenty of darker red berries as well as forest floor and underbrush. Straight and focused on the palate, it has present tannins, good overall balance, and solid length on the finish." ~ Jeb Dunnuck "...is attractive, but also on the lighter side for this wine. Bright red cherry, red plum, blood orange, mint, game, cinnamon and rose petal are nicely delineated. There's good energy, to be sure. Ideally, this would have a bit more in the mid-palate." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous
