    Winemaker Notes

    Mac McDonald, the winemaker and owner of Vision Cellars, makes pinot like Robert DeNiro dominates a scene. Powerful, charismatic, and seemingly relentless, this wine redefines pinot as you've known it. Very dark and extracted in the glass, with a huge nose of fruit, earth, coffee and truffles that are almost overpowering. With air the wine softens a bit, and that's when you notice the persistent finish. This is a whopper of a wine and just about as unforgettable as DeNiro wielding a baseball bat.

    Charles Schwab got his start picking apples and selling magazines door to door. Hewlett Packard started in an old barn. They all had clear visions of their dreams, and Mac McDonald, winemaker and owner of Vision Cellars, is no exception.

    Most of us remember our first wine tasting epiphany - that moment when you FINALLY understood the magic in the bottle. Growing up in East Texas helping his father make corn whiskey, Mac had his epiphany with a taste of 1952 Burgundy and that was all she wrote. This wine comes from a small vineyard near Petaluma, CA, and is made at Caymus Vineyards in Rutherford. 1997 was his first release, at just about 400 cases, and an excellent example of dreams (or visions) fulfilled.

    Internationally recognized for gorgeous, pure fruit combined with great elegance, California Pinot noir thrives among the state’s cooler, coastal zones. Characterized by eclectic flavors and aromas of strawberry, black cherry, plum and potpourri with notes of forest floor, mushroom or black tea, the best California Pinot noir boast a supple texture and good acidity, giving them the ability to improve with age.

    Credited with the beginning of Pinot noir’s glory in California, two growers, Joe Rochioli and Joseph Swan in the late 1960s independently planted Pinot noir vineyards in the Russian River Valley of Sonoma County. Today Sonoma County remains the leading producer of Pinot noir in the state, and Pinot noir is the leading red grape in the county, achieving its highest potential, in the Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast.

    Other coastal appellations where Pinot noir flourishes include Carneros, Anderson Valley and most of the Central Coast.
