The 2018 Sandler Russian River Valley Pinot Noir Cuvée Marcy is the second addition of this wine dedicated to the memory of the great farmer, Marcy Keefer. Marcy budded over an acre of her vineyard from Dijon 777 Pinot Noir to the Swiss clone 23 Mariafeld in 2008. She intended this acre to be for Sandler. After Marcy passed away in 2016, we lost the contract in 2017, but through some good fortune, we were able to get a few barrels' worth of this block in 2018. We produced only 71 cases of the 2018 Cuvée Marcy, and more than half of it will be going to Japan, so enjoy this while it's available.
