Winemaker's Notes:

This wine has an intense and rich red ruby color with a luxuriant nose of red cherry, black cherry, exotic spices, clove, vanilla, and a hint of earthiness. Loads of concentrated red and black fruit flavors are balanced by well-structured tannins. I recommend drinking this wine at a lower temperature, around 60° F, to bring out the fruity nuances of a rich Pinot Noir.

About Baileyana Winery:

Baileyana's winemaking facility is in the heart of the Edna Valley. The building was designed and built to Christian Roguenant's specifications. It houses a first-rate fruit delivery system, small presses, and many small open-top fermentors. In an adjacent building are three climate-controlled barrel rooms. The winery design allows Christian and his winemaking team a number of options for fermenting and aging the wines. Because they can treat each clone as a separate wine, they can identify and enhance the particularities of the very best lots. They then blend selected lots together in a way that creates the best of the best-the winemaker signature on our world-class Baileyana wines.
