"Failla's 2017 Pinot Noir Keefer Ranch is wonderfully expressive in this vintage, with lovely floral and savory top notes that add brightness to a core of red/purplish berry fruit. Medium in body and gracious, the Keefer Ranch is very pretty. This is an especially perfumed style from a site where producers have historically chosen to coax a more overt expression of the Russian River Valley. -- Antonio Galloni"

"One of the backward wines in the lineup was the 2017 Pinot Noir Keefer Ranch, which has a smoky, underbrush, and black fruit-driven style as well as good mid-palate depth, integrated acidity, and solid overall balance. Nevertheless, it’s tight and closed on the palate and will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age."

The Wine
This site lies in the southwestern-most part of the Green Valley of Russian River Valley, an area noted for its intense morning fog and sandy Goldridge series soils. This combination makes Keefer Ranch a site that provides balanced water, nutrition, and sunlight; all important factors in delivering high-quality, personality-driven fruit.

The Estate
After cutting his winemaking teeth assisting a consultant in France’s Rhone Valley during the difficult 1992 and 1993 vintages, Ehren Jordan went on to make powerful Petite Sirahs and Zinfandels for Turley Wine Cellars. The lessons he learned in France about maximizing ripeness in challenging conditions now serve Jordan at the 85-acre property on the Sonoma Coast, about 2.5 miles from the Pacific Ocean. In 1998 Ehren planted another parcel contiguous to their first, and in 2002 planted it with five acres of rootstock before grafting six selections of long-coveted Pinot Noir scion material the following year. Ehren’s commitment to the highest standards of viticultural practice, coupled with his education in France and throughout California, is expressed every bottle of Failla Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
