Failla Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
notes from the producer:
While the history of Failla (pronounced FAY-LA) is short, it is not without its complexities - our first vintage release was as Failla-Jordan in 1998. That year, Failla's first release of Alban Vineyard Viognier (Edna Valley) and Que Syrah Syrah (Sonoma Coast) coincided with planting the first blocks at our Estate Vineyard in Cazadero. The first Estate releases would be several years away.
Ehren loves to experiment with his favorite varietals, coaxing out their various incarnations from different climates (cool, cooler, and coolest), soil types, and rootstock.
In 1998 we bought a parcel contiguous to our first purchase from a few years earlier. In 2002 it was planted with five acres of rootstock before grafting Pinot Noir clones the following year. Ehren's viticultural training in France greatly influence his farming and winemaking choices, so that our eleven acres of Estate vineyards today produce Syrah, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir that capture the essence of California's coolest regions.
After cutting his teeth on Pinot Noir in 1999 with fruit from Keefer Ranch Vineyard in Russian River Valley, Ehren began seeking out enough unique, cool-climate Pinot Noir sources to galvanize his urge to tinker for years to come.
Our Pinot program eventually came to include wines from Hirsch Vineyard (2001), Occidental Ridge (2005), Peay Vineyard & Pearlessence Vineyard (2006), Whistler Vineyard (2009), Savoy Vineyard (2012) and Platt Vineyard (2015). We have also recently headed north, adding a single vineyard wine sourced from the highly acclaimed and Seven Springs Vineyard in Oregon's Eola-Amity AVA.
