Product Description

Winery's Notes: 
"The Vineyard -Italian immigrant Antonio Romanini planted this vineyard, his first in Sonoma Valley, in 1954. Since then, the alluvial soils have yielded grapes for perfect Pinot Noir: vines with compact clusters and smaller yields. The vineyard comprises mostly Pommard and Calera Clones on 101-14 rootstock. The fruit intensity from this site is influenced by the nearby Carneros climate and the growing season’s cool nights and warm days. Adding to the provenance is the fact that this vineyard is farmed by the "grandfather" of organic and biodynamic vineyard farming in California, Phil Coturri, and his team at Enterprise Vineyards. 

The Label- Todd’s maternal grandfather, Ray, joined the U.S. Navy during World War II. Inside the family, they called him The Engineer. After returning to the U.S., Ray joined the team that built the Saturn V rocket that took us to the moon. He always had the big picture in mind."

94 Points - Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Pinot Noir Romanini Vineyard "The Engineer" is pale ruby-purple colored and intensely scented of crushed cranberries, wild strawberries and pomegranate with touches of rhubarb, tilled soil and trues. Light-bodied with incredible intensity and perfume, it features very soft, ne-grained tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing long and minerally. 195 cases were made." - (LP 4/27/2018)
