Ringing out, as it has for centuries, the mission bell beckons across the hillsides calling out to the devoted. Here, where lush hillsides meet the Pacific Ocean, we pursue a singular canon – to make great wine. Canon 13 wines are the answer to the mission bell and our vines are protected by the ingress of maritime fog that keeps the temperatures just warm enough to perfectly ripen our fruit.
The Canon 13 Pinot Noir expresses aromas of ripe fruit and delicate tea leaves. Bright red stone fruits, flowers and sweet spice are woven together, underpinned by bright acidity, wrapped in a beautifully long finish.
- Clusters were de-stemmed and fermented with selected yeasts
to help promote fruit expression.
- The fruit is cold-soaked for two days, then fermented in stainless-steel.
- The wine aged for 14 months in traditional Burgundian seasoned oak barrels of which 5% was new French oak. This encouraged texture development while preserving delicate aromas and fruit character.
