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.
Red cherries, raspberries, and brambly blackberries immediately jump from the glass followed by notes of clove, mesquite, and wet cedar. On the palate the wine shows cherry liqueur, marionberry, Italian plum, earthy wet loam and a hint of leather. With nice weight and texture, this wine is both approachable while hinting at its history for aging potential.
