2018 Pinot Noir, Wildcat Vineyard

Only 12 bottles left!

This vineyard is well named. Remote and over-looking San Pablo Bay, this wine certainly reflects the mountaintop terroir. Savory herbal and dark fruit aromas evolve into a long lush finish. Drink now or lay down for the next five years and watch this wine evolve. The Wildcat Pinot Noir consistently sells out, so grab a bottle or three while you can!

We love showcasing this wine and the unique terroir of Wildcat Vineyard. On a clear day, you can see the Golden Gate Bridge from here. We have a long standing partnership with Steve MacRostie and love working with this fruit.

Winemaker’s Notes

A rustic aroma of dark fruit leads to notes of savory herbs and black cherry. Tones of earthy blackberry on the palate evolve into a long, velvety finish.

The Vineyard

Planted in 1998 by vintner Steve MacRostie and partners, Wildcat Mountain is a hilltop vineyard (700 feet above sea level) often in the middle of the fog and vigorously challenged by the wind. The soils are rocky and well-draining. The nearby San Pablo Bay contributes to the overall terroir and climate. Altogether these elements make the vines struggle and produce distinct flavors in the finished wine.
