Solomon Hills Vineyard experiences a long and mild growing season perfect for the style of Pinot Noir we are seeking. Located at the westernmost end of the Santa Maria Valley AVA, the vineyard sits in the valley widely open to the Pacific Ocean only 10 miles away and gently slopes towards it, so you can actually see the dunes from the vine rows. Our blocks are located on the valley floor with sandy soils and receive an aggressive afternoon sea breeze which serves as a moderating influence.

Vintage Notes

A dry winter and cool spring delayed bud break and slowed bloom and fruit development. Warmer summer weather, however, prevailed through August and was followed by an unexpected heat wave of eight days in early September. Reduced yields, a result of drought conditions over the last two years, combined with the warmer September have produced an expressive vintage featuring ripe, concentrated flavors.


The 2022 vintage features roughly a third of each of 777, 115, and Pommard clones. After destemming and a three day cold soak, fermentation took place in open top stainless steel tanks at a range of warm and cool temperatures. Aged for 11 months in 100% French oak with 48% new barrels.

Wine Profile 

Nose: Fruit aromas of pomegranate, cherry and blood orange are mixed with dusty earth, mushroom, clove and white chocolate.

Palate: Medium bodied flavors of cranberry and sun-dried tomato are accented by notes of tarragon, black tea and anise, framed by bright acidity.
