Living away from Japan makes us more appreciative to the Japanese food culture. It is subtle, simple, but also rich, and unique. In order to pair with Japanese foods, which articulate the expression of seasonal and fresh ingredients, the red wine needs to be transparent and nuanced yet carries a structure. We are convinced that Pinot Noir from Sonoma Coast could satisfy our needs. We source three clones (Swan/777/115) from Sangiacomo's Roberts Road vineyard in Sonoma Coast. We would like to express length and transparency with Swan and finesse and structure with 777 & 115. 75% are fermented in an open top fermenter with some whole clusters and the rest is fermented in barrels (100% native yeast). The both portions are drained and combined before dryness to obtain an ideal tannin structure for this particular Pinot Noir. It is aged in 100% French oak (50% new) for 14 months.
