Winemaker Notes

Head High Wines saw a long, cool growing season in 2019, allowing the fruit to have extended hang time, giving the wine a sense of equilibrium and balance. 2019 shines as the year of true-to-form Pinot Noir with an abundance of high-quality fruit to choose from to make the final blend which included fruit from 5 Sonoma County vineyards. The blend showcases the fog blanketed sites with the warmer vineyards situated inland on the valley floor producing a bone-dry wine made with minimal winemaker intervention. It expresses a pure, unadulterated Pinot Noir made true to the varietal expression.

COMMENTARY: The 2019 Head High Pinot Noir shows an excellent and attractive presence on the palate. TASTING NOTES: This wine offers persistent aromas and flavors of savory spices, sandalwood, and black cherries. Pair it with grilled, mint-accented lamb chops. (Tasted: March 22, 2021, San Francisco, CA)

Wine Enthusiast
From a series of great sites, including Gap’s Crown, this wine opens in earthy barnyard notes that meet strawberry and red licorice flavors. Well-textured and lush in style, it delivers a note of sweet oak that works well with the fruit.

Home to a diverse array of smaller AVAs with varied microclimates and soil types, Sonoma County has something for every wine lover. Physically twice as large as Napa Valley, the region only produces about half the amount of wine but boasts both tremendous quality and variety. With its laid-back atmosphere and down-to-earth attitude, the wineries of Sonoma are appreciated by wine tourists for their friendliness and approachability. The entire county intends to become a 100% sustainable winegrowing region by 2019.

Sonoma County wines are produced with carefully selected grape varieties to reflect the best attributes of their sites—Dry Creek Valley’s consistent sunshine is ideal for Zinfandel, while the warm Alexander Valley is responsible for rich, voluptuous red wines like Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are important throughout the county, most notably in the cooler AVAs of Russian River, Sonoma Coast and Carneros. Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Syrah have also found a firm footing here.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
