I learned to make Pinot Noir at the Hirsch Vineyard on the Sonoma Coast (read the book), Goldeneye Vineyards in Anderson Valley, and Whitethorn Winery in South Humboldt County.
For my 2017 Pinot Noir, I produced two barrels from Sta. Rita Hills, a mix of Mt. Eden and Swan clones, aged in 50% new oak and finishing at 13.4% alcohol.

Syrah - SOLD OUT!
I spent two, hand-blackened years in Barossa Valley, Australia, working with Syrah from the best vineyards for Two Hands Wines (read the book).
The Delmore 2017 Syrah is from Stolo Vineyard in Cambria: possibly the coolest site for the varietal in California. From a 1 acre block of Alban clone picked on October 30th, I co-fermented 5% Viognier in an open top bin, and aged the finished wine in two neutral French Oak barrels. Alcohol barely hit 13%.
Release date is October 1st, 2018. 45 cases produced.
