2016 Hyland Vineyard Pinot Noir
ALC 13.7% Cases Produced: 50
Refined and focused with notes of strawberry, rose, violets and raspberry jam with a hint of white pepper. The mouthfeel is round and elegant, with a fruity core of red cherries and orange peel supported by well integrated and sophisticated tannins.
Nestled in the weather shadow of the Coast Range mountains, vineyards in the McMinnville AVA benefit from longer ripening periods and the resulting wines show beautiful purity of fruit. Predominantly marine sedimentary soils are interrupted with scatterings of basalt which make not only vineyard selection, but block selection, an important task for a winemaker.
