Joan and Lew Platt planted these vines for us to work with on their property overlooking the town of Bodega. A very cool site with intelligently selected plant material that is well farmed is a Pinot Noir maker’s dream. Red, black and blue fruit character with great structure, minerality and complexity are the result.
Vines planted in 1912 - this wine celebrates their 100th year. Only two men have farmed them over their lifespan: they were planted by my grandfather, Fred Carl Scherrer, and have been cared for by his son (my father), Edwin Rowe Scherrer. This wine has seen only older, larger format cooperage, and relies on the grape's every nuance.
