Pinot Noir, Mahoney Estate’s Las Brisas Vineyard | Carneros AVA, Sonoma

From: $0.00

Francis Mahoney and his outstanding viticulture team have provided us with Pinot Noir for more than 15 years. The Swan clone has been Peter’s favorite from the Carneros even longer. The combination of site, viticulturist and clone selection offers some of California’s best Pinot Noir fruit. Moderately priced in this market, these grapes have won gold at the San Francisco Chronicle wine competition. The clone’s namesake, Joe Swan had a vineyard winery in Sebastopol, and was an airline pilot. His Pinot Noir and Zinfandel were both top class.

Vineyard

Aptly named, this 110-acre vineyard is often shrouded in fog until around noon when cooling breezes blow in from the Pacific Ocean and San Pablo Bay. These maritime breezes generally subside around seven on summer evenings. Located a half mile south of the Carneros Highway on the Sonoma side of the appellation, this property gently slopes to the west and tilts like a table with a short leg on the southwest corner. The gentle grade, with only a 50-foot overall drop in elevation, promotes uniform ripening. The soils are mainly sandy silt with a layer of gravel from an old stream-bed and one area of black clay. A wide variety of Pinot Noir clones and an array of Italian and Spanish varieties are grown.
