Sourced from among the state's greatest Pinot vineyards—Morning Dew Ranch in Anderson Valley, Hirsch on the far Sonoma Coast, Hanzell's historic property on Sonoma Mountain and single sites within the Talley and Calera estates on the Central Coast—they're some of the grands crus of California Pinot.
