About the Estate

Steve Zotovich has made the journey that so many of us dream about from avid collector to Estate owner. His vineyards are sand based, which means his wines show natural energy and lift. In fact, his vineyards are so highly regarded that some of the valley’s most prestigious producers purchase Steve’s fruit to produce minute quantities of truly exceptional Pinot Noirs, Paul Lato being a good example. Four Corners spent the day with General Manager Jason Carter, and Winemaker Dan Schuler-Jones, including a tour of the vineyards and planned sites for a ground-breaking Grenache project. As with all of Four Corner’s Californian partners, Zotovich produces only a few barrels of his top cuvées which sees them sell out at release every vintage. Thankfully, Steve is incredibly generous and has given us the UK’s first allocation including the first ever merchant release (globally) of his prized 'Z Cuvée' Pinot Noir. Steve's selection of the very best parcels produced in miniscule quantities: only one barrel is made each vintage.

  • “Vivid ruby. Musky dark berries, incense, vanilla and woodsmoke on the intensely perfumed nose. Deeply pitched black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors show very good clarity and are given spine and vivacity by juicy acidity. This rich yet lively pinot noir finishes with strong thrust and cut and slow-building tannins. Really clings to the palate. Definitely give this youngster some air or a few more years of bottle age.”
