The Alchemists

 

George Troquato, Winemaker
Alejandro Aldama, Cellar Master

The Grape

This Pinot Noir clone is Dijon-115, a higher-yielding clone that gives off spicy aromas, especially when whole clusters are used during fermentation. It produces complex and powerful wines—not as deep in color as other clones, but with longer aging potential.

The Land

Pietra Santa Vineyard lies in Cienega Valley, where cool marine air spills over the mountains from Salinas. The San Andreas Fault line runs through this region, filling the soils with granite and limestone, which work well in concert with the cool climate for ripening Burgundy varietals.

The Season

 

2015 marked the 4th year of drought in California. Cool weather during bloom in May and June led to a remarkably early harvest, resulting in lower yields, but fruit with concentrated flavors and colors.
