Who: Scribe Winery is managed by fourth-generation California farmers and brothers, Andrew and Adam Mariani in Sonoma, Calif. The winery was founded in 2007 on a property that pioneered pre-prohibition Sonoma Valley winemaking and produces vibrant, terroir-driven wines.
What/How: From Pinot Noir vines planted on the flats of the Scribe Carneros farm in 2007, composed of equal parts of two California heritage clones ideal for the region’s dense clay: Martini and Pommard. Vinification methods are the same as their Estate Pinot--fermented with native, wild yeast in concrete or steel then aged in neutral oak barrels for about six months
Tasting Notes: High toned red fruit, spice and earth with soft tannins and delicate mouthfeel.
