2017 Pinot Noir
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. In 2008, Anne grafted one of her favorite clones from the Donum vineyard onto the 777 portion of her vineyard with the goal to make a special bottling. 2017 is just the fourth vintage ever made, with 2013 being the first offering of this wine. It speaks of the Anne Katherina vineyard, with great structure and bold expression. The philosophy: site determines quality; clone offers personality. This clone adds finesse and layers to the structure the site offers.
