A label crafted by Jim Clendenen of Au Bon Climat using fruit from the Russian River Valley of Sonoma County. In 1998, Barbara Barham Mendelsohn and Richard Mendelsohn planted 5 acres of Pinot Noir on Lala Panzi Ranch in the Russian River Valley near Healdsburg, the same year that Jim Clendenen planted his Le Bon Climat estate in the Santa Maria Valley. The label represents a joint venture between Jim Clendenen and the Mendelsohns.
The vineyard was planted under the direction of viticulturist Fred Peterson to clones 114, 115, 667, 777 and Pommard.
