This tiny vineyard (1.68 acres) is planted to a single clone and can only be described as a labor of love. MacPhail Wines has a ten-year history with the vineyard, and is the only winery sourcing fruit here. The Martini clone of Pinot Noir produces distinctive fruit with earthy, herbal notes often described as robust, and just as often as a favorite of Anderson Valley.
Jim Pratt began developing this vineyard in the late 1990's, on a site south of Graton and west of Sebastopol on the far western portion of the Sonoma Coast in an area known as the Sebastopol Hills. The slightly sloping hillside receives the classic morning fog and warm afternoons common to the coastal region, producing fruit with great acidity.
