THE VINEYARDSCecil De Loach planted these delicate Pinot Noir vineyards in 1973 in the Russian River Valley. Located on the plains and gently rolling hills off Olivet road in western Santa Rosa, this area provides an excellent medium for the coastal fog that blankets our fruit in the mornings and evenings. The cooling moisture facilitates a longer growing season in which Pinot Noir thrives.

THE GROWING SEASON2017 was another fantastic growing year in the Russian River Valley. Yields were larger than that of 2016 while a slightly cooler August allowed the clusters to mature more slowly and evenly than previous vintages, providing great flavor and color development.

THE WINEMAKINGWe use old world techniques, whole berries, and 1 0 % whole clusters to make our Pinot Noir in small batches that we "punch-down" up to three times a day. After native yeast fermentation, the wine is aged in French oak barrels for up to 8 months to achieve optimum balance and complexity.

THE WINEThis Simeone Vineyard Pinot displays floral and rich cherry-vanilla aromas with light sandalwood. Densely layered with flavors of currants, rhubarb, and fresh blackberry, there are subtle hints of baking spices and dry tobacco finishing with lush black cherry-maple.
