The Campbell Ranch vineyard on the Sonoma Coast is located a few miles from the Pacific Ocean, near the tiny town of Annapolis. Farmed by Steve Campbell and the guys who own Anthill Farms, at approximately 750 feet above sea level, it sits at the boundary of the marine layer, allowing the cool, coastal conditions to delay ripening compared to the warmer vineyards to the east. This leads to a brighter acidity as well as a level of finesse that good Pinot is known for. The twelve-year-old vines grow on sandy, low-vigor Goldridge soil, which helps reduce yields to less than two tons per acre. The Campbell Ranch exhibits fragrant aromas of cherry liqueur, jasmine, and green tea, with subtle fresh mushroom scents as the wine opens. The velvety mouthfeel and intense midpalate flavors complement and highlight the nose. Juicy acids and subtle tannins rein in the gentle sweetness of the fruit and add structure to the wine, lifting and lengthening the floral, spicy finish.
