Winemaker's Notes

Our 2008 Guarachi Family Wines Pinot Noir underwent malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels and was aged for 11 months. It is loaded with raspberry, currant and cedar supported by firm yet silky tannins on the palate. The finish lingers showing more layers of balanced, perfumed fruit.

Critical Acclaim

"Impressive for its richness, depth and layers of ripe cherry, wild berry and raspberry fruit, shaded by loamy earth and black licorice notes that continue to build and expand. Full-bodied, ending with a long, persistent finish that focuses on the fruit themes. Drink now through 2017. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 690 cases made."
