Winemaker's Notes:

This jammy and complex wine has deep concentrated aromas of ripe black cherry, spice, and a hint of smoke. The full, lush mouth feel follows layered flavors of candied plum and vanilla, reflecting the depth of the fruit and lavish use of oak. Beautifully balanced, it offers good body, rich texture, and a long, lingering finish. Grilled meats or hearty bistro makes for a perfect match.

About Garys' Vineyard
Located hillside in the Santa Lucia Highland appellation of Monterey County, Garys' Vineyard is a joint collaboration of grape growers Gary Pisoni and Gary Franscioni. Planted to the famous "Pisoni" clone of Pinot Noir, with origins from La Tache, Burgundy, this highly regarded clone has captured national attention for its superior quality and expression of flavor.

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.
