The name Ex Vite means "from the vine" in Latin. It's an appropriate moniker for a wine that utilizes 100% wholeclusters during the fermentation process. This rich and layered Pinot Noir offers aromas of dark berries and cherry complimented with hints of dried herbs and anise. Flavors black raspberry and black cherry become denser towards the finish and finish quite long with earthy tannins and a touch of spice.

Vineyard Notes
Our Estate San Saba Vineyard is set in a sheltered nook just below the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA. The estate consists of 72 acres of which 67.75 are planted to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah and Falanghina. This is a cool site with little rainfall and one of the longest growing seasons in the world. Our soils, Arroyo Gravelly Loam and Hanford Gravely Sandy Loam, provide a low-vigor, well-draining, disease- and pest-free medium for our vines. They also impart a subtle mineral quality to our wines. To preserve our local ecosystem, we have worked with viticultural consultant Steve McIntyre to develop a sustainable farming program (SIP), certified by CCVT, tailored to our estate. In addition to protecting the local environment, we believe it allows us to produce wines that are more authentic and specific to our terroir.
