"With over 25 years in the wine business in Central and Northern California, Jason Drew brings a vast depth of knowledge and a holistic perspective to his winemaking. Drew focuses on small lot coastal Pinot Noir and Syrah from Anderson Valley and the Mendocino Ridge. For his sourced fruit, he has long standing partnerships with several local vineyard growers who share his passion for sustainable and meticulous farming practices. Single vineyard sources are chosen for their climate, clonal selection and complexity of soil type. Winemaking practices remain focused on traditional methods that include whole cluster and native yeast fermentations, hand punchdowns and no fining or filtering." —winemaker
"The Syrah The Ornbaun is the most forward and supple of the three 2014s I tasted. Dark red stone fruit, tobacco, smoke and licorice are front and center. Hints of rose petal, lavender, spice and mint open up in the glass, but above all else, the Ornbaun is a fruity, layered Syrah built for near-term drinking. Drinking window: 2017 - 2024." —Antonio Galloni, Vinous
