On a recent trip up to Sonoma to taste with Mike from Winesmith, SWMBO and I bumped into Clark and David. We didn't get a chance to try any of his wine, but felt lucky to get a chance to meet him. Very down to earth.

I am definitely intrigued here and like the numbers. Hopefully some notes show up.

If David pops back in, do either of these Pinot carry the sonoma coast earth and funk that so many people favor? It sounds like the Dutton may lean a little in that direction.

I did contribute to the d'spill the black...I began making pinot seriously in 2001--I love the wine and, just before 'that movie' it still seemed a good choice for a small quality oriented producer.

Both these wines are single vineyard productions. The Freestone Hill comes from 5 rows of clone 667, (a Dijon clone), in a Dutton leased vineyard out between Freestone and Occidental. Very much ocean influenced--fog and cold in spring mean small concentrated berries that nonetheless ripen quickly with the late summer heat. Harvest timing is critical to retain the bright fruit & avoid jammy or raisin character.

I find a similar character in other wines from the area--a kind of earthy gamieness that clashes with the raspberry fruit when young, but adds complexity and interest as the wines age...

The Crane vineyard is located just South of Santa Rosa at the Eastern edge of the S. Coast appellation. A strong afternoon breeze that comes in from the ocean via the 'Petaluma Gap' cools the fruit and makes the site good for pinot, and probably not so good for any other red varietal...dry farmed, low crops mean intensity, great raspberry fruit, some black tea character. Clones are mainly Dijon, 115, 667, 777 mixed with some Italian 'Pinot Nero' fruit--a true pinot, but slightly darker and with more 'wild berry' flavor than the Dijons...

Forgive the wordiness, hope this answers some questions.

Thanks--yes both do have that 'earthy So. Coast funk' or something like it, more pronounced in the Freestone, in the Crane it comes off more as black tea and toasty dough...

I'll be around...but a moving target!
If you're free in the evening, the Annex, on Highway 12, near the 90 degree turn, pours some of my wines and often has some good live music. Send me a note, dgnoyes@sbcglobal.net, and perhaps we can meet there...

That the same Crane Ranch out on Crane Ranch Road off of Petaluma Hill Road that produce(s)(d?) the uniquely delicious Crane melons we used to eat in the 50's -80s?

That's it! The vineyards date from 2002, but the Cranes have been growing their melon since the 1920's-30's...still are...

I'm wondering if any of that area was in vineyard before WWI... I don't think so, though. Weren't there some grapes planted up by Vallejo's Adobe ranch house up against the foothills of Sonoma Mountain back in the late 19th century?

I am laying down some wine at my daughter's house in Ohio (fortunately for me Ohio is almost always on the short list of shipping states) in anticipation of my visit in summer 2015 with my German wine friend. I wasn't going to bite on this one and then I see the dreaded "RPM seal of approval ©". Sigh. I'm hitting the big yellow button.

My dogs like me, that is important.

The most prominent old vineyard in the area would probably be the Fountain Grove Winery at the North end of Santa Rosa...you can see the 'Round Barn' from Mendocino Ave & Fountaingrove Parkway...originally planted in the 1880's and producing until the 1930's--at least that what I picked up from a quick google.

Of course Sonoma Valley has a number of old vineyards, mostly zin, dating from the late 1800's many still in production, & Sebastiani claims the oldest vineyard site, the 'Town Vineyard' planted originally for the Mission.

I'm going in for two sets. You can get a bottle each when you roll through town for the tour if you want.
