Reuling Vineyard lies just off Highway 116 between Graton and Forestville. Developed in 2000 by Mark Aubert and Peter Michael Winery, the site has become one of the premier Pinot noir and Chardonnay properties in California.
It includes 12.2 acres of Pinot noir planted to three unique clones–Calera and two distinct “suitcase” clones from the Vosne-Romanée region of Burgundy–and 2.2 acres of Chardonnay grown from cuttings from the Côte de Beaune.
This Pinot Noir blends all three clones beautifully. Each bringing a different element whether it be silkiness, darker/earthier notes or displaying wonderful bright red fruits. These all compliment each other beautifully, leaving a Pinot Noir with some age that is just scratching the surface of its prime.

Earthy, juicy and leathery, this wine was made from three clones of Pinot Noir. Each was fermented separately with a percentage of whole cluster, then blended together for this age-worthy concoction that’s complex and compelling. Pomegranate and fig combine on the palate, along with more savory elements of allspice and coconut, finishing with a crispness of orange.
