Winemaker's Notes:

The color is a beautiful garnet, classic Russian River as is the fruit, loaded with black cherry flavors. There's mocha in the nose and perfectly balanced hints of elegant oak, which contributes a rich texture. The mouthfeel is round and engaging, classic Pinot Noir, with a note of lively spice at the end. The finish is long and the wine shows great aging potential.

The production wing is outfitted with carefully selected equipment, to allow the careful control essential to producing a wine based on minimal handling. Its three barrel rooms with independent temperature and humidity controls provide flexibility to experiment with various vinification techniques, in order to best express the fruit's character. The Marimar Torres Estate wines appeal to the small segment of consumers who enjoy having the finest.We pride ourselves in producing food-friendly wines.
