This begins four feet from the end of the South slope and continues to slope to the North. It is 100% French clone 115. The close proximity to the South slope does not influence these flavors as clone 115 exhibits the most fruit driven flavors and appears more "New World" then French.

The 2018 Pinot Noir The North Slope has a medium ruby-purple color with deep aromas of cranberries, blackberries and rhubarb accented by blood orange, pipe tobacco and forest floor. The palate is medium-bodied, both powerful and elegant, with concentrated, detailed flavors, a silky, fresh frame and long, lifted finish. 1,087 cases produced.

The 2018 Pinot Noir The North Slope Vineyard ample and creamy, with terrific depth and tons of Russian River generosity. Black cherry, plum, mocha, spice and licorice all open up in this beautifully resonant, expansive Pinot. Floral overtones and bright acids add vibrancy to play off the racy, soft Russian River curves. Best of all, the 2018 will drink well with minimal cellaring.
