Winemaker's Notes:

A deceptively complex Monterey County Pinot Noir which focuses on a light and dry body style, with bright flavors of cherry and strawberry that accentuate the woody and herbacious finish.

About Pessagno Winery:

Pessagno Winery is the culmination of a twenty-year vision of Stephen Pessagno, winemaker, to produce limited quantities of exclusive, prestigious single vineyard wines from Monterey and San Benito counties.

Established in 1999 with family and friends, Pessagno Winery is nestled in the scenic Santa Lucia Highlands of Monterey county overlooking the Salinas River where cool climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes flourish.

All Pessagno wines are styled for elegance, balance, and finesse, with an emphasis on the maximum varietal character of the grape and respect for the unique expression of each vineyard's Terroir.

Each vineyard is carefully selected for the high quality of its fruit and meticulously overseen during the growing season to intensify the aromas and flavors of the grapes. The wines are handcrafted in separate lots using only the finest winemaking techniques and traditional French oak barrels.
