2015 Patriarch Pinot Noir
Full-bodied, elegant, and rich with bold red fruits, white pepper, clove, and earth. Exceptionally food-friendly and age-worthy.
James MacPhail's Notes
The 2015 vintage was notable for drought and subsequent low yields in the vineyards, leading to smaller grapes of high concentration and exceptional quality in the Putnam Vineyard. This is a full-bodied Pinot Noir with an array of rich, bold aromatics and flavors that can absolutely hold up to richer food pairings and several more years of aging.

- Sonoma Coast
Putnam Vineyard is situated on the extreme Sonoma Coast, just six miles from the Pacific Ocean. 400-year-old redwood trees surround the vineyard on all sides and are scattered throughout the rows of vines. The coastal climate and Goldridge sandy loam soils result in wines with plenty of richness along with high-toned finesse.Explore Vineyard
