2020 Pinot Noir - Swensrud Vineyard

Sonoma County

Winemaker's Notes

Our Pinot Noir comes from the Swensrud property which is located on Westside Road about 4 miles south of Mill Creek Vineyards. The grapes for our 2020 Pinot Noir were harvested on August 28, 2020. Fermentation took place in open top tanks, where the wine was punched down 3 times per day.  Following fermentation, the wine was aged in French oak (25% new) for 22 months.

Tasting Notes

This fruit-forward wine presents a captivating nose of ripe and dried red fruit. On the palate, the flavors unfold harmoniously, offering juicy notes of ripe, strawberry & plum fruit complemented by subtle undertones of earth, mushrooms, and black tea. The interplay of fruit and earthiness achieves a delicate balance, making this wine an ideal pairing for both elegant dinners and casual gatherings.

For an exceptional pairing, consider enjoying our Pinot Noir alongside dishes like grilled or roasted lamb seasoned with rosemary and thyme, a creamy mushroom risotto, or a robust beef bolognese.
