The Pinot is drawn from a specific parcel of vines planted by Gerald Ellis in 1987, which Pete thinks is a combination of MV6 and D5V12. This 2021 was hand-picked over the course of two weeks. Everything was destemmed into three open fermenters with varying levels of whole clusters (roughly 30% of the final blend) and as many whole berries as possible (no crushing). There was a cold soak for five days before the natural ferment took over. The wine was then pressed to French oak (10% new) on heavy lees, where it rested for nine months before it was bottled without filtration.
