2016 Gabriella Pinot Noir


2016 Gabriella Pinot Noir


The Gabriella Pinot Noir was born as our grand cru bottling in honor of Jessica’s daughter, Gabriella, to be enjoyed on her 21st birthday, a French tradition that the family adopted. Since then, the goal of the Gabriella Pinot Noir is to create a wine of strength that is intended to age with complexity, refinement, and grace. It is comprised of three special lots, whole cluster for tannin complexity, and a higher than usual percentage of new oak for longevity. This was cited by Forbes as “Outstanding- If you’re a lover of Pinot Noir, don’t miss this wine” and won a Double Gold in the Oregon Wine Awards.

Jessica: The serious nose with rose petal, dark cherry, plum, and spice is followed by a structured and contemplative texture accented with minerality. Supple tannins lead to a long finish.

Gabriella: This is my wine. Smells like cherries.
