A classic coastal Pinot Noir from Anderson Valley. Pinot Noir grapes are carefully selected from three vineyards in Anderson Valley: Donnelly Creek, Ridge at Valley Foothills, and Wiley, in the famed “Deep End”, the westernmost portion of the valley. Donnelly Creek Vineyard, a beautiful 80-acre site, rests in a slightly warmer part of the appellation, translating to relatively riper fruit. Ridge Vineyard, a family-owned site, gives 30 year-old Jackson clone Pinot Noir with exceptional flavor. The historic Wiley Vineyard is a true cool-climate site, resting on benchlands just ten miles from the Pacific Ocean. This vineyard is renowned for its bucolic setting and pristine fruit that is an appellation benchmark. Bravium grapes are night harvested by hand and sorted in the field and again in the cellar. Patience is employed throughout the process. The wine was aged 10 months in French and Hungarian oak (33% New). This wines has been selected an Editors' Choice by Wine Enthusiast Magazine who scored it 92 points saying "This is an engaging, nervy wine with a light, savory aroma and tangy red cherry flavors riding on a firm frame of fine-grained tannins and good acidity. It's not trying to overwhelm with super-ripe fruit or oak, but just lets the purity of the grapes shine through."
