Club Price: $16

This is a food-friendly wonder child that can stand up to lamb or roast beef yet won’t overpower lighter fish or pasta dishes.

Our Sonoma Coast Vineyards are approximately 4 and 8 miles west of the winery. Our Lazy C Vineyard is in an area called "The Petaluma Gap" and those vines see cooling coastal wind through much of the growing season. Our Lazy P and M ranches are a few miles further north and the vines occupy a number of different facings. The vines are often shrouded in fog which makes for a long cool growing season and maximum flavors. Both of these areas are known for producing outstanding Pinot Noir grapes and wine.

Grapes were hand-harvested, pressed and barreled for 8 months in 40% new medium plus toasted French oak for subtle vanilla and toffee notes.
