From the Winery

“Medium-deep ruby color; deep red cherry and forest floor aromas; complex, bright cherry fruit with rich, earthy notes; sweet oak, silky texture; good structure and balance; long finish. Complex, earthy Pinot with bright cherry fruit; great for a grilled pork chop or an earthy pasta.”

“Blue Farm takes its name from the farmhouse at Anne Moller-Racke’s home, and vineyard, in Carneros. In 2001, Anne planted seven acres of Pinot Noir divided into three blocks dedicated to the Swan clone and three Dijon clones. Clones: Swan & Dijon 115, 667 and 777 100% free run. Small open top stainless steel tanks.”

“2020 was one of our most difficult vintages in the last decade. Winter rainfall was low, 14 inches compared to the normal of 24 inches. These drought conditions and constant temperature fluctuations caused a lower than normal set, resulting in lighter yields. Extreme heat in the middle to late August caused lightning storms which started fires in most of northern California. The heat impact was lessened by the higher than normal humidity. Our harvest started early September. We were picked in a few days, which was the right decision. Hang time was not desired this year because of the smoke. The wines were bottled in early March, allowing them to age in barrel for 17 months. Normally, I say that a vintage is a story in a bottle, however, the 20’s do not expose all of the hardships of this year. The 2020 vintage wines are very approachable now, with soft tannins and delicious fruit. I feel very grateful that we were able to come out of this year with beautiful wines that we are proud to share.” –Anne Moller-Racke
