Price Family Estates Pinot Noir is our distinctive winemaker’s blend. By selecting specific grapes from our six estate vineyards, our team integrates the unique qualities of each site to create a wine that represents the variety and depth of the Three Sticks portfolio. Our team works diligently to bring the varied terroirs together into one harmonious experience. This vintage is no different - it is a beautiful representation of all Sonoma County has to offer.
The 2021 vintage began with a very dry winter making early irrigation in the vineyards necessary to counteract the lack of rain. With cooler weather around budbreak and flowering, we saw a fair amount of fluctuation in the timing and development of the grapes. This led to highly variable yields at harvest, which kept our winegrowing team on their toes. Harvest got underway on the last day of August and continued throughout September at a steady, methodical pace. Overall, the fruit was quite enticing, with medium to full body and particularly impressive tannin structures on the Pinots.
Well rounded with a balance of rich fruits and woody tannins, the 2021 elicits boysenberry, wild strawberry, and pine needle. With essences of ripe watermelon, Rainier cherries, and vanilla, this wine is ready to be enjoyed now, or in 10 years.
