"The 2019 Pinot Noir Occidental Ridge Vineyard is one of the highlights in this range, as it has been in the past. Bright and punchy, with superb definition, the Occidental Ridge possesses superb depth from start to finish. Dark cherry, plum, lavender, spice and menthol race across the palate. This is one of the more exuberant wines in the lineup, and yet all the elements are so well balanced. Time in the glass ... read more

"The 2019 Pinot Noir Occidental Ridge Vineyard is one of the highlights in this range, as it has been in the past.

This is one of the more exuberant wines in the lineup, and yet all the elements are so well balanced. Time in the glass brings out a whole range of floral and savory accents that are quite attractive.-- Antonio Galloni"

Wine Spectator 94
"Deep and rich, this is filled with concentrated Christmas spice, dried fig and dark plum flavors that are juicy and well-structured. The plush, creamy finish offers notes of cocoa powder. Drink now through 2026. 528 cases made. — KM"

Jeb Dunnuck 94
"Lots of ripe, darker herbs, scorched earth, and both red and black fruits emerge from the 2019 Pinot Noir Occidental Ridge, a medium to full-bodied Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir that's certainly one of the biggest and richest in the lineup. Beautifully textured yet always balanced and elegant, with terrific tannins, it's ideal for enjoying over the coming 7-8 years, if not a decade."

The Estate
After cutting his winemaking teeth assisting a consultant in Frances 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. Ehrens 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.
