2020 BARRA of Mendocino Pinot Noir
Our 2020 pinot noir was hand-picked from our home ranch located on the bench lands at the headwaters of the Russian River. After being delivered to our winery five miles down the road, the grapes were crushed and moved to stainless steel tanks where they underwent primary and secondary fermentation. The resulting wine was then racked to barrel where it was aged for 11 months.
This beautiful Mendocino pinot noir showcases colors of red rose petals and ruby jewel tones. Aromas of fresh crushed strawberries and cherries explode from the glass, followed by hints of sweet French oak and spice notes. Upon taking your first sip you are rewarded with flavors of ripe red fruits, clove and mineral notes. The wine finishes with silky tannins and length long after you have set the glass down. Enjoy this beauty with BBQ salmon, polenta or a myriad of cheeses including Gruyere and Gouda.
