2006 Toyon Farm Pinot Noir 6PACK
Tasted 6/26/19: Black plum, dried tobacco, forest floor, and ample tannins
All Friends & Family orders will be shipped on August 8 or available for pick up at the winery on August 9 or 11. Given the summer heat and the delicate nature of these older vintage wines, we recommend you add a 6 or 12 bottle coolpack to your cart (depending on your order) before checkout. Adult signature required for delivery and highly recommended on the first delivery to reduce exposure to summer heat. A business address is recommended.
Originally founded as a Morgan Horse Farm, Toyon Farm took its namesake from a perennial shrub native to Carneros. Saintsbury’s relationship with Toyon Farm formed right when the vines were planted. Today, we enjoy access to the grapes from this site that is located about 500 meters east of our Brown Ranch estate vineyard, and separated by Hyde vineyard.
Terroir: The “banana belt” of the Carneros AVA—warmer days and cool nights. Hillside vineyards facing the west that sit on a mix of volcanic soil and marine sedimentary clay loam; creating a wine of robust style with dark aromas.
