The first Pinot Noir from Fleur de California was produced in 1987, so this represents our 35th vintage. In recent years we have shifted to using more fruit from our estate vineyards as well as the Haire Ranch. The resulting wine has complex flavors of Bing cherry, raspberry and peppercorn with earthy aromas that conjure forest floor and black tea. The wine spent 12 months aging in 15% new French oak, which enhances palate structure and length to the finish without masking the bright red fruit notes and varietal character that we strive to preserve.

"This is a classic-style wine typical of the grape variety, showing good red and black cherry flavors that are accented by leafy, woody and cinnamon nuances on the palate. It's medium bodied, well balanced and has light, textural tannins."
– Jim Gordon, Wine Enthusiast
