Vibrant, Complex & Elegant 95 Point Pinot Noir – A real gem and real “pretty”

The Maggy Hawk Vineyard has been Family owned since 1994, and planted in 2000, the estate vineyard is tucked away in what locals call “The Deep End” of Anderson Valley, northwest of Philo. Here, coastal fog and redwoods frame the steep vineyard slopes where the vines root deeply to survive. The decomposed sandstone soils offer few nutrients but excellent drainage, resulting in small yields of well-structured fruit that can go the distance in the cellar.

FYI: Jolie = Pretty

Expressive, silky, and refined. Jolie is an elegantly transparent Pinot Noir – sharing the beauty of Block 9’s hillsides in every bottle. The wine opens with light-footed red fruit and rhubarb, then blooms into bright raspberry, strawberry, and oral notes. A perfectly balanced acidity accompanies the delicate fruit notes across the palate and into a soft finish.

Wine Spectator 95 Points: “Fine-grained red fruit and berry flavors are refined and etched with rich spice and sandalwood accents. The juicy finish lingers with vibrant minerality and hot stone notes. Complex and elegant, exhibiting a vibrant balance. Drink now through 2025.”

Winemaker Notes: “Our 2017 Jolie Pinot Noir is crafted only from Block 9 and clone 115. The exceptional quality and style of the fruit from this vintage were a perfect fit for Jolie, and worthy of standing alone. Block 9’s north-facing and south-facing slopes were harvested and vinified separately on parallel tracks. After an initial five-day soak, the fruit fermented in three-ton fermenters with pump-overs twice daily. The grapes were pressed after fermentation was complete, and aged in 45% new French oak before the final blend was assembled. Unrefined and unfiltered.”
