“Home Field” is a site not far from the ocean, just north of the seaside town of Jenner. It’s cold here, and the grapes struggle to ripen, but they do get there, thanks to late August heat. The Wine Advocate loved this wine’s notes of “black tea, scorched earth, raspberries and wild blueberries with fragrant wafts of lilacs and rose hips plus a suggestion of charcuterie. Medium-bodied, intensely fruited and tightly wound, the palate is taut, muscular and lively with bags of energy down to the long, perfumed finish.”

Wine Advocate

Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2016 Pinot Noir Home Field Vineyard gives up notes of black tea, scorched earth, raspberries and wild blueberries with fragrant wafts of lilacs and rose hips plus a suggestion of charcuterie. Medium-bodied, intensely fruited and tightly wound, the palate is taut, muscular and lively with bags of energy down to the long, perfumed finish.
