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.

Wine Advocate Review
by Robert Parker

Pale ruby, the 2018 Pinot Noir Miller Vineyard has expressive aromas of underbrush, wild mint, tobacco and dried orange peel, tea leaves and floral perfume. The medium-bodied palate is wonderfully silky and expansive, with intense layers of spicy fruit lingering on the long finish. Lovely! 150 cases were made. —95 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.
