We use traditional methods to craft limited-production Pinot Noir and Syrah from the Sonoma Coast and Santa Cruz Mountain appellations. Our winemaker and proprietor, Scott Sisemore, brings his drive, experience, and deep knowledge of red wine production to shape the wines from grape harvest to bottling.

August, 2013: SF Chronicle wine editor, Jon Bonné, takes a look at 2011 Pinot Noir from the Sonoma Coast. Here's what he has to say about the Waxwing Spring Hill Vineyard Pinot: "Scott Sisemore tapped into the precipitous ripening potential found west of Petaluma, in the area's wind gap, for this effort from the Spring Hill Vineyard. A slight use of whole clusters comes through in a spicy aspect of black peppercorn and sage that's matched by plush, straightforward fruit flavors." Find the full article here.
A great write-up from Steve Heimoff of the Wine Enthusiast also on our 2011 Pinot Noir (91 points): "So delicious and approachable, it’s hard not to drink it now for its raspberry and cherry jam flavors. The vineyard is in the Petaluma Gap, whose cool climate lends it dryness, low alcohol and brisk acidity, at no cost at all to the richness." —S.H
