Winemaker Notes

Offering bright fruit and floral nuances with ripe cherries, wild strawberry, rose petals and jasmine, this seductive wine continues to evolve both in the glass and in the bottle revealing its more subtle notes of vanilla spice and stoney minerality. The palate is incredibly seductive with its smooth soft structure and silky finish.

by Antonio Galloni

Super-ripe black cherry, plum, cola, mocha, lavender and sweet spice all flesh out in the 2015 Pinot Noir Miller Vineyard. This is a decidedly exotic, lush style, and yet all the elements are very nicely balanced. The 2015 is a pretty wine, but a bit blowsy next to the other wines in this range. A wine of impact rather than subtlety. – 92 pts.

Miller Vineyard

Located on the southern edge of Graton, this north facing one acre vineyard lies on a gentle slope that protects the fruit from the hot afternoon sun. Planted in 1998 in Goldridge soils the vines are trained on a vertical trellis.
