From our estate vineyard in the Coast Ranges of the McMinnville AVA comes a Pinot noir that exemplifies the richness of this region and the signature syrah-like color of the site.
Bright cherry nose with persimmon and baking spice notes. Red Cherry, hints of blueberry and apple-cranberry come alive on the palate with a full and lively mouthfeel. Brown sugar, brown butter, cassis and a hint of dried herbs and spice leads you into the finish that show mouth drying tannins, hinting at this wines structure and age ability.
