Kiser Vineyard is one of the last vineyards in the Valley. In this chilly corner, harvest is often up to a month later than in the southern part of Anderson Valley, only 15 miles south. The hillside vineyards sit on a thin layer of topsoil over sheets of fractured sandstone and shale. The upper block is slightly warmer and harvested first. Its wines are high-toned and bright. After millennia of erosion of the hillside, the lower block has deeper soils and thus broader, deeper flavors. A local vineyard worker remarked it was the coolest vineyard in AV.
A collection of our finest true Sonoma Coast vineyard sites are blended to capture the essence of coastal influenced, cool-climate Pinot Noir. Sensual, silky, aromatically enthralling Pinot that mixes exotic spice notes with blueberry and fresh maitake mushroom notes. All of the vineyards included in this blend sit atop the typical Goldridge soil series of the area.
