Pre-Order

The property is set in a dramatic landscape of undulating slopes hidden among winding mountain roads and redwoods, swathing a ridge on the north-western reach of the Sonoma Coast at 1,100 feet, just 4 miles from the Pacific Ocean. Their small-lot Pinot Noir and Chardonnay on goldridge soil and renowned vineyard developer David Abreu designed the vineyard as 30 one-acre blocks, each dedicated to an individual clone. This is all about terroir and the results are clear for all to see (and taste!).

"The 2018 Pinot Noir Wayfarer Vineyard has a medium ruby color and slowly opening perfume of garrigue, dried orange peel, prosciutto and rose petals with mineral-laced cranberry and red and black berry fruits. The medium-bodied palate, grainy and incredibly fresh, slowly gains in flavor amplitude and nuance in the mouth, ending in a fanfare of spicy detail." 98+pts Erin Brooks, Wine Advocate.

"Moving to the Pinot Noirs, the 2018 Pinot Noir Wayfarer Vineyard was just about completely destemmed and spent 15 months in 58% new French oak. This deeper ruby/purple-hued effort offers an awesome bouquet of black raspberries, scorched earth, toasted spices, and flowery incense. It's rich, medium to full-bodied, and a stunning effort. It also happens to be made in terrific quantities, with just over 1,600 cases produced. Bravo!" 96pts Jeb Dunnuck, Jebdunnuck.com.

""The 2018 Pinot Noir Wayfarer Vineyard is bright, precise and wonderfully nuanced. Sweet red/purplish fruit, lavender, spice and mint give the 2018 striking inner sweetness and perfume. Pliant, silky and inviting, the 2018 has so much to offer. Even in the early going, the 2018 is a delicate, absolutely exquisite beauty." 94pts Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com.
