From the Winery: "Kite’s Rest vineyard is situated on a 40 acre parcel in Anderson Valley’s western end, called the “Deep End”. It is about 10 miles from the Pacific Ocean. The Pinot Noir vines start from the Navarro River and rise up 400 feet to meet the towering coast redwoods. These are the tallest trees on earth at more than 320 feet, can live for 2,000 years and are found only in this unique coastal environment. The coast redwoods like the region’s cool climate just as much as the Pinot Noir grape. The cool climate is enhanced by the vineyard’s north-facing exposure, providing even greater hang time than is normal in Anderson Valley. As a result, the Pinot Noir grapes ripen slowly and evenly, yielding generous and complex fruit flavors as well as acid balance."
