Vineyard Notes
This 12 acre Castello Estate vineyard, located just west of the town of Philo in Anderson Valley, Mendocino County, is in a very cool microclimate and divided into 9 blocks of Pinot Noir planted with DRC, 115, 777, Rochioli, 23, and 828 clones. It is sustainably farmed by our vineyard team, led by longtime Castello Vineyard Manager David Bejar.
Production Notes
This Castello Estate wine is the newest addition to our Pinot Noir program, and is featured in our exclusive single vineyard Pinot Noir Allocation.
Winemaker Notes
The 2019 year has been one of contrasts and challenges in Northern California. A cool, very rainy winter with flooding in the North Coast, some mud-slides followed by hot spells, windy and inclement weather during bloom and flowering- just another average year! The cool spring, clear, sunny month of June and moderate temperatures through July and August allowed the vines to develop grapes in pristine conditions. By late summer things started to warm up, and continued through early September to bring sugars and the concentration of flavors to ideal levels...Overall the 2019 Vintage looks to be another fabulous year for wine!
Food Pairing Notes
Pair this elegant yet versatile wine with roast duck, charred cod with mushrooms, or sottocenere Italian truffle cheese.
