91 Points The Wine Spectator
"Very suave and rich-tasting, with concentrated dark cherry and plum tart flavors, flanked by toasty notes.
The creamy finish is filled with chocolaty richness."

90 Points The Wine Enthusiast
"Toasted oak and cherry cola make for a jammy experience on the palate.
This is robust and rich in feel, perfect for lovers of Pinot’s hedonistic side."

From the Wagner Family of wines, makers of
Caymus Cabernet, Quilt, and Boen to name just a few!

Each wine is crafted to the purest essence of the vineyard into elegant expressions of California Pinot Noir.

The Dairyman Vineyard

Dairyman sits in the southern alluvial plains of the Russian River Valley – a narrow valley that ends at the Pacific Ocean, near the town of Jenner. Named because it was once a dairy farm and pastureland, this vineyard has realized its greatest potential as a prime, virgin Pinot Noir vineyard. It was first planted in 2000 to a mix of Dijon clones 116, 667 and 777, all grafted on low-vigor rootstock 101-14. The region enjoys an extended growing season due to the cooling fog, that comes in through the Petaluma Gap in each morning and evening, and the afternoon breezes help to soften the effects of the warm sun. Together, these cooling elements help us to achieve ripe fruit while maintaining bright acidity. At the vineyard, each vine has been trained up on a vertical shoot position (VSP) trellis, which both limits the growth and opens up the typically congested fruit zone. The combination of low-vigor rootstock and alluvial soil stress the vines. The cool, coastal climate creates a long growing season that brings about small, concentrated and flavorful berries.
