Winemaker's Notes:

This Pinot Noir begins with aromas of cherry, strawberry and vanilla. It is supple and complex, with dark fruit flavors and a round mouthfeel alongside smooth tannins. The finish is nice and long, with lingering flavors of dark raspeberry and blackberry.

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.
