Notes from the Winemaker:

"GFC" stands for Grand Firepeak Cuvee. And our "GFC" Pinot Noir stands for the best Pinot Noir our winemaker, Christian Roguenant, has to offer. A potential blend of the five clones from our Firepeak Vineyard, the structure is a bit different each vintage. Afforded one of the coolest growing seasons in California, the vineyard is only a few miles inland from the great Pacific. Taking advantage of the unique east-west valley from the Morro Bay, warm summer days are cooled by fog and coastal breezes, allowing the fruit to leisurely ripen on the vine. The mature fruit brings even, full ripeness each vintage, along with balanced acid and sugar levels, helping in Christian's effort to make the best Pinot Noir possible.


What Does It Taste Like?

“This is a big Pinot, with great acid structure, but soft, smooth tannins. Aromas are of anise, cola and deep dark cherry along with smoky barrel notes. Flavors of candied cherry and red licorice are followed by a spicy mid-palate and a nice vanillin, faintly smoky finish.” -Winemaker, Christian Roguenant


Ratings & Reviews


91 Points - Antonio Galloni (2010 Vintage):
“The 2010 Pinot Noir Grand Firepeak Cuvee boasts gorgeous density and sheer power. Black cherries, menthol, cloves and licorice all take shape in this intense, virile yet beautifully balanced Pinot. Stylistically, this is a California version of Nuits St. Georges. The 2010 spent nine months in French oak barrels, 40% new. ” –Antonio Galloni (July 2013)
