100% Pinot Noir Clones Dijon 667, 115
A premium selection of our boldest and most fruit-forward barrels from our Sonoma Coast Vineyard source. King Jay is our darkest-toned and most savory of the Pinot’s we produce. Each year it shines with dark fruits, classic cherry cola, botanicals, complex layers, and candied black cherries.
The source for our newest release “KING JAY” comes from an incredibly sought-after vineyards on the Sonoma Coast. It’s located about 8 miles inland of the Pacific Ocean and about a 1.5 hour drive north of San Francisco.
These coastal vineyards have always supported a large population of native blue jays. Because of this, the old locals came to refer to the area as” Blue Jay” in the local Boontling dialect. As legend has it, the mighty ruler of these birds was the “King Jay,” and we have in turn taken this name for our Sonoma Coast single vineyard Pinot Noir.
Each vineyard and block we blend into King Jay contribute its unique character, and the wine exhibits this richness and complexity seamlessly. “King Jay quite simply comes from some of the most spectacular pinot noir vineyards in the new world.”
