The vineyard sources for our "Blue Jay” Pinot Noir come from highly respected sites that reflect the preeminence of the appellation. Savoy, with its gently sloping hillsides and diverse clones, leads the way for elegance, spice and nuance. Anderson Creek brings concentration and structure, due to the sparse gravelly soils, while Annahalla rounds out the blend with richness of fruit and intensity of flavor.
