Edward Lane 2012 Canihan Vineyards Sonoma Valley Pinot Noir
Canihan vineyards were first planted in 1998. William Canihan Sr. purchased the land from a Basque farmer in 1970. Because of the family's commitment to the land and organic practices, they let nature cleanse the soil for 28 years. They planted 1103 Paulsen, SO4, and 101-14 rootstocks, and the following spring they field grafted Pinot Noir Dijon clones 115, 667, 777, 828, Syrah clone 1, and Cabernet Franc clones 4 and 7. In 2005, they added 4 acres of Pinot Noir clones 115, 667, 777, Swan, Masson, Pommard and Wadenswil (2A).
Certified organic vineyard practices, dry-farming, hand-harvesting only at complete ripeness, fermentation with naturally occurring native yeast, and no fining or filtering result in flavorful wines expressive of our “terroir”.
Our Return Policy is very simple: If you don't like the wine you ordered from us, tell us, send it back to us and we will either replace it for you or reimburse the purchase price to you. Because we believe life is too short to drink wine you don't like.
HOWEVER, we are not responsible for damage caused to the wine due to the weather; heat or cold. If the weather is hot or cold, we urge that you either ask us to hold the wine(s) for you or order overnight shipping.
