Bon Voyage 2019 Pinot Noir, Marin CountyRegular price $42.00
Located only 13 miles from Tomales Bay, Stubbs Vineyard is one of Marin County’s stalwart coastal vineyard sites. The farming practices are highly organic and always sustainable. The entire property is ‘off the grid’ and operates entirely on its own resources. The resulting fruit from Stubbs Vineyard is elegant, fresh, very concentrated for such a cool site, and incredibly varietal.
7 day cold soak. 1/3 whole-cluster. Native fermentations for both primary and secondary. Aged in neutral and once-used French oak barrels.
Bright and lively with natural acidity. Lush, concentrated, with a deep core of red fruit. Graham cracker, bramble and raspberry pie, red licorice, and all-spice. Graceful but generous; this is a pure example of Marin County Pinot Noir.
Countless were the musings and illustrations from my grandfather, the Artist to my grandmother, the Country Girl. And when his career took him south to Los Angeles in 1926, the common thread of all works and formal flirtations became one of motion and travel, to and from one another. His artful campaign was steady, quirky, and led to their wedding on August 9th, 1928 at St. Mary’s Church in Nicasio, California.
