    Winemaker Notes

    An exciting, yet friendly wine, bursting at the seams with aromas of macerated wild berries and an elegant, soft earth undertone.The flavors combine both sweet and tart, reminiscent of Santa Rosa plums and wild blackberries that grow so commonly in SonomaWine Country.The finish is bright, slightly herbal, and savory making this an excellent food wine, as well as a charming drinking experience by itself.

    In the relentless pursuit of wines with balance, elegance, and purity, they have developed relationships with some of the most storied vineyards in Sonoma County and beyond to craft Banshee. The main focus for Pinot Noir is on the cool, rugged, coastal areas of the far Western Sonoma Coast, Russian River Valley, Anderson Valley and Sonoma Mountain. Each vineyard has a unique combination of a specific influence, soil type, elevation, age and exposure but the common thread is that it allows the pursuit of Pinot that achieves power without weight. They allow the grapes to express a certain transparency. They highlight a wide range of flavors other than just fruit. Banshee Wines started in 2009 at a bar in the Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco. With money borrowed from their friends and family, Banshee Wines was launched with eight barrels of coveted Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. The Banshee belief is that the best wines from California are yet to be made...and they plan on producing some of them. They strive to makes wines with the complexity and deliciousness of those found at the very top of the quality and price scale, but at a price that is affordable for everyone and not just the uber-wealthy. The Banshee Tasting Room opened in August of 2013 in downtown Healdsburg, a refreshing and relaxed take on your typical tasting room. It’s more like hanging out at their house and sharing some wine with family, rather than bellying up to an ever-crowed tasting bar. Today the Banshee Wines mission remains the same as it was in those early days – to craft distinctive wines that over-deliver in every possible way.

    Home to a diverse array of smaller AVAs with varied microclimates and soil types, Sonoma County has something for every wine lover. Physically twice as large as Napa Valley, the region only produces about half the amount of wine but boasts both tremendous quality and variety. With its laid-back atmosphere and down-to-earth attitude, the wineries of Sonoma are appreciated by wine tourists for their friendliness and approachability. The entire county intends to become a 100% sustainable winegrowing region by 2019.

    Grape varieties are carefully selected to reflect the best attributes of their sites—Dry Creek Valley’s consistent sunshine is ideal for Zinfandel, while the warm Alexander Valley is responsible for rich, voluptuous Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are important throughout the county, most notably in the cooler AVAs of Russian River, Sonoma Coast and Carneros. Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Syrah have also found a firm footing here.

    Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
