Dierkeís Organically certified hillside vineyard is nestled just off Bodega Highway within a diverse habitat of fruit trees, vegetable gardens, and beneficial plants. Situated in the fog-laden Sonoma Coast appellation, this is a unique 2.6 acre jewel. Married young, the two clonal selections Mt. Eden and 828, co-fermented in their open top tank. Gentle hand punchdowns strengthened their phenolic bond. Together, unfined and unfiltered, a dense, site-specific Sonoma Coast reference point is realized.

THE WINE ADVOCATE #206, April 2013
“The 2010 Pinot Noir Dierke is a big, broad-shouldered wine endowed with considerable structure and power. The flavor profile tends towards dark black cherries, but ultimately the Dierke is more about structure and minerality. Hints of earthiness, tobacco and licorice linger on the powerful finish. It should be terrific in another few years. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022. ” — Antonio Galloni
4th Quarter 2012, Issue 48
“An almost invisible touch of wood sets off the perfumed nose of rose petal, violet, spice and black raspberry. The detailed and energetic flavors possess plenty of mouth coating dry extract that help to buffer the very firm but well-integrated tannins on the dry, dusty and impressively persistent finish. If this can add depth with time in bottle my score could be overly conservative.”— Allen Meadows
