2010 J.L. Kiff Vineyard Pinot Noir

Our inaugural vintage. The vines were in their 5th year. The growing season was fairly cool, which produced wines with a balance of fruit, acidity, tannins, and a little spiciness. Brix 24. pH 3.3. Harvested Oct 22. 130 cases made.

Price: $40 per bottle

2011 J.L. Kiff Vineyard Pinot Noir

2011 was an unusually cold summer, which yielded wines with amazing aromatics, lighter body, and moderate alcohol levels. If you are a fan of the cooler vintages, this year was our last example of one. 210 cases produced.

2012 J.L. Kiff Vineyard Pinot Noir

The 2012 growing season was one of the most ideal in recent memory. Plenty of warm days with a perfect cool-down in the fall months. The clusters were small (due to the cool 2011 summer), resulting in more body and flavor concentration. There is a small percentage of whole-cluster fermentation in this wine.

2014 J.L. Kiff Vineyard Pinot Noir

The 2014 was made using an unusually high percentage of Dijon clones, resulting in a more obvious red fruit component than we usually taste. The clusters were large, producing a lighter bodied wine as compared to other warm summer vintages.

2016 J.L. Kiff Vineyard Rose of Pinot Noir

A rose with plenty of flavor and color, yet crisp and refreshing like a white wine. You should still serve it chilled. A gorgeous deep pink color created by leaving the skins and juice in contact for 4 days.

Price: $22 per bottle
