Baker Ranch sits deeper in the Anderson Valley west of the hamlet of Philo, up above the virgin redwood groves of Hendy Woods. The vineyard sits on a mid-elevation east-facing slope on the south side of the valley, on very shallow slate-based soils of the Casabonne-Wohly complex. The soils have a high mineral content and an unusually high pH for California. The vines themselves were planted almost twenty years ago; they are rigorously farmed by the Baker family.

VM93: The 2016 Pinot Noir Baker Ranch is one of the more exotic wines in the range. Orange peel, star anise, rose petal, spice and mint add aromatic nuance to a brilliant Pinot endowed with tons of energy. Deceptive in its mid-weight structure, the Baker Ranch is beautifully persistent and delineated, not to mention impeccable in its overall balance. The 30% whole clusters are evident, but also nicely integrated.
