Winemaker's Notes:

Displaying the classic qualities of the Santa Lucia Highlands, this silky Pinot Noir has earthy aromas and flavors of dried cranberry, strawberry rhubarb and sour Bing cherry. The wine is medium- to full-bodied, lush and rich.

About Sequana:

Sequana Single vineyard Pinot Noir wines from Green Valley of Russian River Valley and Santa Lucia Highlands are named in honor of Sequana, the Franco-Roman goddess of the River Seine, which flows through the ancestral birthplace of Pinot Noir.

Winemaker and Pinot Noir specialist, James MacPhail, has complete control over the creation of Sequana's limited production wines – from farming to winemaking. He understands Pinot Noir's temperament, its ability to convey the signature of each single vineyard and its preference for restrained, gentle winemaking. He makes his Pinot Noirs by hand in small batches, using cold maceration and native yeasts. "My goal is to express each vineyard’s personality," says James.
