Saintsbury Brown Ranch Carneros Pinot Noir Very Lightly Scuffed Label Slight Signs of Seepage 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

To produce a single vineyard wine you should be convinced the vineyard has something unique and identifiable to offer. It should be a vineyard that will yield a wine whose intensity and personality you are unable to obtain in your other wines. Brown Ranch was planted to the then-new Dijon clones in 1992 along with the addition of Pommard on an exposed ridge. There are eight lots that are separately aged and tracked. And while each have their unique qualities due to clonal rootstock and terroir differences there is a consistent thread running though Brown Ranch Pinot Noir. The ranch has a combination of typical Carneros clay loams and cobbly clay loams as well as some volcanic soil types on steeper hillsides. Three separate Dijon clones (115 667 and 777) are planted on four different rootstocks with many soil types and exposures. Yields typically range from 2.25 to 3.5 tons/acre (30-50 hl/ha). Wines from this vineyard show more rich earthiness and black fruit than the more red-fruit character. A dark fruit intensity with stunning persistence is a hallmark of this wine.

Saintsbury:
First published in 1920, George Saintsbury’s “Notes on a Cellar-Book” has inspired many to experiment widely and to form opinions unaffected by the fashion of the day. Included in those ranks are Mr. Ward and Mr. Graves, who named their winery in honor of Professor Saintsbury.
