Winemaker's Notes

The harvest of 2005 was slow and steady, the result of moderate temperatures and ideal ripening conditions in the Anderson Valley. Overall quality was exceptional as the Pinot Noir grapes were able to be harvested block by block at near perfection. Small lot winemaking techniques add layers of structure to Migration, which highlight the depth and complexity of the 2005 vintage.

This medium-bodied wine has bright fruit complemented by ripe and broad tannins that provide great balance and a lengthy finish. The aroma features blueberry, plum, strawberry pie, and toasted oak. The flavors are focused and follow through with ripe strawberry, plum, and cherry, complemented by clove. A lighter style than the Goldeneye, this wine shows the range and suppleness of the Pinot Noir varietal.

Wow, This pinot blew my brain the first sip that I tasted. I cooled to 68 cold degree and then I was surprised how beautiful this red and soft and very tender wine tasted in my mouth. It has a good balance and it will drink it in a summer time
