Tondré Alarid and son Joe Alarid, both steeped in California’s agricultural history, planted Tondré Grapefield in 1997. Exposed southeast facing slopes, strong marine influence, and well-draining glacial soils are the recipe for ultra-premium fruit. Tondré Grapefield is SIP Certified, underlining the Alarids’ commitment to sustainable farming practices. 

The grapes were completely destemmed after hand sorting. Manual punch downs produced a wine with supple texture and soft tannins. The wine was transferred to 45% new French oak barrels for malo-lactic fermentation and ten months of aging.

On the nose is black cherry, highlighted by espresso bean and subtle turned earth. Flavors of blue fruit and sassafras are framed by a medium body with elegant chalky tannins, making this wine extremely food friendly. Grilled salmon, roast chicken, or beef bourguignon are all great pairings.

“Another beautiful Pinot Noir from Morgan, the Tondré Grapefield rests in 45% new French oak for 10 months. Starting off a touch reductive on the nose upon opening, it quickly opens up to present complex and interesting aromas of blueberry, marionberry, potpourri, peppered charcuterie and roasted coffee. It’s a bit funky on the nose, but in a good way. The palate is not as complex as the nose, giving flavors of blue plum, black raspberry, toasted baking spice and a hint of brown mushroom. Medium acidity, medium tannin and medium-plus body complete this interesting and outstanding wine.”  - Jeremy Young, August 2021

“Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Aromas of black cherry, spice, toast and burnt tobacco. Mid-weight flavors of plum, blueberry, boysenberry and black raspberry with a touch of spice and espresso. Refreshing to drink, with a generous and very lengthy finish.” - Rusty Gaffney, October 2021
