2012 Aston Pinot Noir (750ml)
DescriptionLocated approximately five miles and two ridge lines in from the coast, the vineyard benefits from the cooling effects of the ocean, yet is situated just outside the fog line, so days are long and warm. The vineyard faces southwest and thrives in a microclimate typified by full-sun days and average-plus temperatures that are a standout in the otherwise cooler Sonoma Coast climate.
A dream opportunity, Thomas oversaw the cultivation of this prime 40-acre site and selected the ideal complement of Dijon clones to suit the Goldridge Loam soil and moderate temperatures of the Brushy Creek Loop microclimate. Today, Thomas manages all vineyard activities ensuring optimum crop-yield and quality goals are achieved.
