A tombstone daring back to 1875 marks this special, one-acre block of Pinot Noir at Bohan Ranch.  The vines in the graveyard block are head-trained, raised without irrigation, and planted on their own roots in a distinctively rockier portion of the property.  This type of rustic, old California planting is rare to find, and the resulting wine is unlike anything else that we produce.
