To make this wine, our love of exploration took us to another acclaimed coastal Northern California wine region, Mendocino County’s renowned Anderson Valley. Located just 15 miles from the Pacific Ocean, in the cool “Deep End” of the Anderson Valley, Day Ranch is planted on an alluvial terrace that abuts a mountainside. This wild, rustic terroir yields a complex and distinctive expression of Pinot Noir.
This Pinot Noir has an attractive deep garnet color and enticing aromas of blueberry and cassis, with dusty oak notes rising from the glass and hinting at the wine’s layered complexity. On the palate, a supple entry evolves into a full, rich mid-palate with layers of dark berry fruit. The finish is long, bold and lasting.
This vintage produced 257 (9L) cases, 10 barrels.
