Winemaker's Notes

This Mark West Pinot Noir begins with appealing aromas of ripe cherry and rich toasted oak. The palate has wonderful depth and is fresh with flavors of succulent cherry, wild strawberry and exotic clove like spices. The wine finishes long and full. The 1999 Mark West Sonoma County Pinot Noir is a wonderful fusion of grapes from the Russian River Valley integrated with a small portion of fruit from the Napa Valley. Grapes harvested from a combination of Mark West and Dutton Ranch Vineyards in the Russian River Valley make up 95% of this elegant Pinot Noir. The remaining 5% of grapes are selected from Napa Valley to enhance the wines depth and flavors. Prior to fermentation, the berries are cold soaked for two days to enhance color and bring forward the Pinot Noir flavors in the wine.
