Winemaker NotesEach year this bottling presents a deep ruby red center that works its way to a brilliantly bridge edge in the glass. Initial notes of white tea, smashed raspberry, orange pith and wet gravel fill the bowl. Sun warmed damp earth, coastal moss-covered pine tree give way to rose petals and delicate spice that speak of this coast site, lingering on your palate.

Hailing from just under two miles from the Pacific Ocean, our Home Field bottling is our most westerly site and also our most elegant. 

Whole cluster • Native fermentation • Aged in neutral French oak barrels • Bottled without fining or filtration • 4.8 acres


Critical Acclaim


James Suckling - "Impressive freshness and purity of fruit here, making for an enticing young pinot with an air of grace and great potential. Such compelling, earthy sous bois, spices and fresh red cherries. The palate has a captivatingly layered and seamless feel, building fresh red-cherry and deeper blueberry flavors. The rhythm and depth here are magnificent. Superb. Try from 2022."


Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "Made with 100% whole cluster, the 2017 Pinot Noir Home Field Vineyard is pale to medium ruby in the glass and offers up smoked meats, stone, violets, wet bark and citrus peel over a dense core of cranberry, pomegranate and rhubarb with dried black tea leaves notions. Light to medium-bodied, it explodes in the mouth with orange peel, earthy nuances and fantastically concentrated fruits, knit with a fine frame of lightly chalky tannins and juicy freshness, finishing very long and layered. This is drinking beautifully now but will age well in bottle."


Antonio Galloni - "The 2017 Pinot Noir Home Field is the most inward of the three Pinots from Raen. Intense whole cluster savoriness, saline underpinnings and searing tannins give the 2017 much of its reticence today. Even so, the 2017 offers tremendous energy and overall intensity, not to mention tons of personality. I suspect all it needs is time in bottle. Readers will have to be quite patient, as the 2017 is not at all ready to offer much in the way of pleasure today." 94+
