Halleck 3 Sons – Pinot Noir

2008 THREE SONS CUVEE  
Russian River Valley

The Three Sons Cuvee is a blend of two vineyards in Sebastopol. We consider it the little brother to our Estate Grown Pinot Noir. Now in its sixth vintage, it was the wine that gave rise to Halleck Vineyard, a desire to create a college fund our three sons, Connor, Adam, and Quinn.
