Pinot Noir is one of the most noble grape varietals in the world with the longest history in Burgundy. The Zotovich Vineyard is one of the leading sites in the Santa Rita Hills! I also make a Zotovich Vineyard Syrah for Blair Fox Cellars. These vines are planted in beach sand and the majority of this vineyard is flat, while the days are warm and foggy with very cool nights. It was fermented in a small 1.5-ton fermentor with 30% whole-cluster and 90% whole-berry. It was punched down by hand one to three times per day, basket pressed and aged in older French oak for 16 months prior to being bottled.
