Mas Cavalls Pinot Noir 2018
We have named this bottling Mas Cavalls after the Catalan name for Horse Farm, since our new event center at our former horse barn lies right below the vineyard. The Doña Margarita Vineyard is named after the late matriarch of the Torres family, this 20-acre vineyard, certified sustainable, is located on the Bohemian Highway, between Freestone and Occidental, in the Sonoma Coast appellation of origin. The cool breezes and drifting fog from the Pacific Ocean, six miles away, make it an ideal site for Pinot Noir.
Planted in the European style of super-high density, with 2,340 vines per acre, the yields are low and labor is intensive; but the vines live longer and the grapes acquire better balance and greater concentration, as well as more elegance and finesse.
