Winemaker's Notes:

Aromatically the wine offers seductive notes of black cherry cola, crushed rose petals and pine-laced forest floor. The mouth feel is classic Ramey: plush, round and silky-smooth. The forward fruit character of the wine is supported well by its refreshing acidity. Made with 100% Pinot Noir.

This wine behaves equally well paired with grilled skirt steak fajitas as well as wild mushroom and burrata bruschetta.

About Brassfield Estate Winery:

The western section of High Valley Appellation holds the magical lands know as High Serenity Ranch. The 2,500 acre former cattle ranch is now home to Brassfield Estate Winery & Vineyard. In 1973, Jerry Brassfield purchased the original 1,600 acres as a cattle ranch and wildlife reserve. While the cattle have gone, the wildlife still remains. Over the next three decades Mr. Brassfield continued acquiring lands. Today, the estate includes both the eastern and the western sections of High Valley as well as ownership of Round Mountain Volcano.

In 1998, the Brassfield family realized the land’s true destiny was as a world-class wine property. As a result, Brassfield Estate Winery & Vineyard was established. With the new estate vineyards increased production, the winery has grown with additional tank & barrel storage capacity and a state-of-the-art crushing facility.
