From a collection of vineyards along or near the Pacific Ocean. Perfectly ripe cherries, strawberry plus a ruby red grapefruit edge make for an intense, juicy, exotic Pinot Noir. Aged in 1/3 new French oak, "Jon Boat" starts with just a whiff of sweet, toasty barrel before launching into penetrating Pinot Noir fruit. A long, floral, litely spicy, deliciously fruity finish will have you coming back for more. I don't have duck very often, but this wine makes me crave it. Why a Jon Boat? Jamey grew up hunting and fishing on a Jon Boat (a flat-bottomed boat made for the lake) in South Carolina. Let's hear it for good childhood memories. 800 cases made.

Coming from the western part of the Russian River Valley, Jamie Whetstone has created a delicate and feminine Pinot Noir that still shows a gutsy, California-style structure. Red berry notes dance on the palate.
