Winemaker Notes

Offering bright fruit and floral nuances with dense 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 intense and seductive with its smooth structure and silky finish.

by Antonio Galloni

Dark cherry, plum, rose petal, mint, dried flowers and licorice give the 2016 Pinot Noir Miller Vineyard its distinctly earthy profile and rather somber feel. Deceptive in its mid-weight personality, the 2016 has quite a bit of depth lurking in the background. – 90 pts.

Miller Vineyard
