  • Wine Origin
    The small clusters and berries of the Pommard Clone at Klopp Ranch consistently produce a wine of extraordinary color and depth. This was especially true in 2019, which was a nearly ideal winegrowing season. There was just the right amount of heat early in the growing season to acclimate the grapes, and mild temperatures continued throughout the season ensuring superior flavor development. The grapes from Klopp Ranch were harvested by hand in the cool evening hours of September 13th, 2019.
  • Production Notes
    The fruit was gently destemmed into small open-top fermenters, using state-of-the-art equipment and procedures to avoid any pumping of the must. Inoculation with select yeast strains followed a three-day cold soak, and the caps were managed with a combination of pump-overs and punch-downs. The wine was aged for ten months in 31% new, and 31% one-year-old French oak barrels, with bottling on September 11th, 2020.
  • Winemaker Notes
    The father-daughter team of Ted and Lauren Klopp have been farming in the Russian River Valley for over two decades. Their home ranch is on Laguna Road, where the vines are tucked away in the nook of a foggy valley. Our rows are planted to the Pommard Clone in rich, fertile Goldridge soils, where the vines produce small, intensely flavorful clusters of grapes.
