Vineyard Notes
Salmon Creek Block sits at the lower elevation of our Balistreri Vineyard in Freestone. It is 3 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean and is adjacent to the Salmon Creek. This area is fast proving to be one of the finest growing regions in the world for producing wines that are truly Burgundian in character but possessing the depth of complexity that makes west Sonoma County so special.

Vintage Notes
2015 was another year marked by drought in the Sonoma Coast appellation. An even growing season lead to an early harvest of lighter yields. Warmer temperatures in August helped accelerate sugar accumulation and encourage ripeness while the small berry size concentrated flavors, making this another exceptional vintage on the Sonoma Coast!

Winemaker Notes
This vineyard block selection from Balistreri Vineyard is planted to Dijon 115, 667 and 777 Clones, plus the Pommard 1 Clone of Pinot Noir. This kind of clonal diversity in one vineyard block becomes a wonderful “blending tool” for our winemakers, allowing for a broad palette of flavors, textures and aromas to be expressed in the finished wine.
