I have oft admired the rich and nuanced Pinot Noir bottlings of many of my friends, grown on their estates in the cool and foggy extremes of the Sta. Rita Hills. So, in 2014 when a dear friend offered me the Pinot from two of his family’s prized blocks, I jumped at the chance. I secured an acre each of clones 667 and 2A at Rio Vista Vineyard, along Santa Rosa Road. The vineyard is impeccably farmed with no expense spared. Yields are always modest, even in larger vintages, due to the careful winter pruning and summer vine management. We are so very pleased with this debut release of our our very own Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir. I hope that it will go into heavy rotation on your own “playlist”, at the table. Yes, this wine is rich and powerful, but in a nearly transparent way. Red fruits and forest floor mingle with toasty oak from the indulgent French oak aging, and the finish never quits. I hope that you adore this special bottle of Pinot Noir as much as I enjoyed crafting it for you.

This is E11even Wines:
I am so proud to announce the re-launch of E11even
Wines. This is a very personal project
for me. I feel like these wines have
been works-in-progress for a decade or more, only finally jumping from my
imagination and into the bottle just this year.
These new releases rank amongst the smallest production wines that I
have ever released. They are all Estate
Grown and crafted with the utmost care and precision. They truly represent the best that we can do
here, on the Curtis Estate, in the heart of Los Olivos. No expense was spared in the farming or the
crafting of these stunning wines. They
are rich and decadent, yet remarkably balanced, pure, and varietally correct. They speak softly of their variety and their
origins. They shout, “Drink Me!” These wines exemplify the Natural, Locavore
and Farm-To-Bottle movements. They are
grown in Los Olivos, Hand-Crafted in Los Olivos, and sold in Los Olivos by a
family that has been here for over 25 years.
We have decided to dedicate our newly remodeled Downtown Los
Olivos tasting room exclusively to these wines.
Andrew Murray Vineyards Club Members are offered complimentary tastings
in DTLO as a member perk. I urge you to
give them a try, before they are all gone.
While you are there, you can browse our updated collection of books and
bar accessories, including some of my favorite shakers, shrubs, mixes, and
bitters, while listening to vintage vinyl tunes. We look forward to seeing you soon!
We also have an E11even Wine Club in the works. Just 2 shipments or pick ups per year, each
containing 6 bottles. Selections will be
offered in the spring and the fall.
Membership will naturally be limited due to the tiny production of these
wines. Members will have priority access
to our new releases which will soon include a Petite Sirah and a Sparkling
Wine, as well as some other delicious surprises...Stay Tuned!
