2020 "Goorgian Vineyards" Pinot Noir (1 X 750 ML)
The Goorgian Vineyards are located at the northwestern end of the Anderson Valley, 10 miles east of the Pacific Ocean and situated on steep, rocky northwest facing slopes with an elevation ranging from 200-350 feet. Shallow loamy topsoil facilitates excellent drainage above a layer of sandstone and shale, stressing the roots to reach for nutrients and water. Cooler daily temperatures are ideal for Pinot Noir with nightly coastal breezes dropping into the 50s, creating the perfect sugar to acid balance in the grapes. This environment provides a long, even growing season which delivers mature fruit depth with a vibrant, acidic backbone. Goorgian Vineyards is managed by our long-time grape growing partner Paul Ardzrooni.
The 2020 growing season was mild overall, with bud break occurring earlier than in years past. More spring frost events than typical and little rainfall, set the region up for a low-yielding season resulting in densely concentrated fruit. Harvested grapes delivered beautiful intensity and rich balance.
