ACCOLADES

• Owen Bargreen (93 Points)

"Sourced from this site in the Green Valley of Sonoma County, this offers cran-cola, loamy soils and a bright salinity that runs through the pretty red fruits on the palate. Full-bodied and full of finesse, enjoy this lithe and polished 2019 Pinot Noir over the next ten years. Drink 2022-2032."

• Wine Enthusiast Magazine (90 Points)

"Tasting of strawberry cream, this is a lively and fresh wine with cool-climate acidity that keeps it vibrant in contrast to the underlying richness of ripe fruit. Melon, cherry and raspberry fill out a fleshy midpalate that is lightly spiced in nutmeg and rose." - Virginie Boone

• Double Gold Medal - San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition

"There were over forty-eight judges, representing various North American wine regions, evaluating 5,816 wines from nearly 1,000 wineries for the 2022 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition."

Vineyard Notes
This Castello-owned vineyard is located in the sub-AVA of Green Valley on the southewestern edge of the Russian River Valley in Sonoma County. Situated only 15 miles from the coast, calm, foggy mornings give way to warm afternoons and cool, breezy night, providing a perfect climate for growing Pinot Noir. It is planted with 12 acres of clones 115, 777, and Pommard 4, which are nourished by the Goldridge sandy loam soils of this historic district.
Food Pairing Notes
Perfect to pair with ginger chicken and saffron rice, duck confit, or pappardelle with brown butter sage sauce.
