索諾瑪是生長世界級黑比諾葡萄酒的最佳地區之一。 Clines是索諾瑪縣南部大約20年前種植黑比諾葡萄藤的早期先驅。弗雷德·克萊恩（Fred Cline）的選址得益於太平洋海岸線，穿過Petaluma鎮和聖巴勃羅灣（San Pablo Bay）。在夏季，葡萄藤會在多霧的早晨和涼爽的夜晚，以及陽光普照的溫暖下午之間達到平衡。這些生長條件使果實能夠生長期間更長，完全成熟，從而增加了明亮的酸度和強烈的風味。將葡萄去莖並直接送到不銹鋼發酵罐中。依靠本地酵母開始發酵。每天抽入由葡萄固體製成的 以提取顏色和風味，然後在乾燥後不久將其壓榨。酒放置在不銹鋼罐中，然後在40％的法國中度烘烤橡木中放入架子，陳放5-10個月，再加上少量美國和東歐橡木。
Sonoma County is one of the finest regions for growing world-class Pinot Noir. The Clines were early pioneers in southern Sonoma County planting Pinot Noir vines almost 20 years ago. The location that Fred Cline selected, benefits from a coastal mountain opening that spans from the Pacific Ocean, through the town of Petaluma and on to the San Pablo Bay. In summer, vines experience foggy mornings and cooling evenings balanced by sun-drenched warm afternoons. These growing conditions allow the fruit to hang longer, fully ripen and mature which adds bright acidity and intense flavors. Grapes were destemmed and pumped directly to stainless steel fermentation tanks. Indigenous yeast is relied upon to begin fermentation. The “cap” which is made up of grape solids is pumped twice a day to extract color and flavor, then pressed shortly after dryness. The wine settles in a stainless steel tank, and then racked and aged for 5-10 months in 40% new French medium- toasted oak, in addition to a small amount of American and Eastern European oak.
