The Saveria Vineyard is located only 6 miles from the Pacific Ocean, 700' above sea level, just outside the town of Corralitos. This vineyard is farmed by famed Santa Cruz "Grape Whisperer" vineyard manager Prudy Foxx who has a knack for finding forgotten vineyards that have gone feral and organically bringing them back to life. An ideal temperature flux results from the constant morning and evening fog, producing delicate yet intense Pinot Noir. PLanted to a mix of Clones 777, 115 and 667

The wine is a perfect marriage of crisp red fruit and dusty earthiness. There is an intermingling of salinity and elegant red berry on the nose. While the translucent ruby color might suggest a watery wine, this is anything but the case: there’s a lovely sweet raspberry on the front end, flowed by dusty cherry and bergamot tea on the mid-palate leading to a bright but long finish.
