Windvane was created by winemaker Steven Urberg as an homage to the wind that contributes to the unique character of the wines of Western Carneros. Windvane is selected from the most expressive vineyard blocks throughout 335 acres of estate vineyards-a unique property has an East facing exposure combined with a tall mountain range to the West. Vines from the windiest, steepest, and rockiest areas of the vineyards where the soils are very thin produce small crops of very slow ripening fruit that
produce intense character. The result is Windvane, a concentrated pinot noir with great depth of fruit and a generous mouthfeel.
