Pinot Noir »
Hangtime Pinot Noir captures California's famed cool climates.
From rugged mountain slopes to windswept coastal plains, from gentle, sunny foothills to foggy river valleys, California wine country is dramatic, diverse and stands among the best winegrowing regions of the world. Long, sunny days ripen wine grapes to vibrant fruit expression, while chilly nights and ocean breezes maintain their bright natural acidity. We source Hangtime wines from select spots where this combination of sunny days and cool nights slows ripening for a long, steady growing season. The longer growing season means that grape clusters spend a higher than average number of days hanging on the vine — an extended “hangtime” results in complex, perfectly balanced wines.
