A chance to make Pinot Noir, and more specifically Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir, presented itself in the form of Summa Vineyard and Scott and Joan Zeller. I first met Scott while I was working at Turley in 1999. We fell out of touch for a few years before a good friend reconnected us in the summer of 2002. Genevieve and I jumped at a chance to work with Scott and Joan appreciating not only the fabulous opportunity to work with a vineyard as storied as Summa but we really appreciated their aesthetic. Trips to the vineyard yielded great Pinot grapes but also jams, dozens of eggs, fava beans, potatoes and homemade wines all made by the Zellers from their property. Scott has also introduced us to what will become a big part of the future of Read more »

  • Come on Greg, seems you liked a few at your blind tasting. It's OK to admit ... notes late. Reminds me of Rivers Marie Sonoma Coast in that way. Nice dose of acid on the finish. Drained pretty quick over dinner. Nice QPR. Probably best over the next 5 years.&nbs Read More
