Due to the soils in the vineyard, the Estate Pinot Noirsí elegant, transparent style is more Burgundian than Californian, emphasizing wild strawberry, earth, blueberry and dill varietal characters. Cellaring the wine from five to twelve years pays handsome rewards.

Martin Ray planted pinot noir at Mount Eden in 1942. The budwood came from Paul Masson's original vineyard near Mount Eden. Because Masson was a good friend of the Louis Latour family of Burgundy, itís likely the selection came from one of Latourís best vineyards and was brought by Masson to California during the 1880ís. The faith Ray demonstrated in this most difficult of red varieties, at a time when America had little appreciation of fine wine, was remarkable. Today, our pinot noir vines occupy seven acres of our estate vineyard and typically yield a meager 1 to 1.5 tons per acre.
Wine maker notes
The varietal character emphasizes wild strawberry, earth, blueberry and dill. Elegance and transparency is the key to our style. Cellaring from five to twelve years will pay handsome rewards. The soil in our estate vineyards and our cellar practice give a more Burgundian style rather than a Californian one.
