Winemaker Notes:

Planted in 1975, and featuring a northern exposure, Reed Vineyard is always the last vineyard harvested on Mt. Harlan, yielding a wine with fascinating aromatic complexity. On the nose, red cherry and rhubarb mingle with layers of smoked game and hints of dried herbs and spice. The lush red fruit is echoed on the palate, where it is underscored by supple, flowing tannins that carry the flavors to a long, compelling finish.

 

Production:

A wet winter, with more than double our average annual rainfall, made for very happy vineyards in 2017. While budbreak arrived slightly later than usual, warm spring weather led to excellent fruit sets at our Mt. Harlan vineyards, with above-average yields for both Pinot Noir and our white varieties. Thanks to the abundant early season rains, and Mt. Harlan’s high elevation and marine-influenced climate, our estate vineyards weathered a significant Labor Day heat event wonderfully, producing complex and elegant wines, with beautifully balanced acids and sugars.
