The Destination Pinot Noir leads with violets, lilac and other purple flowers on the nose while strawberry, raspberry, cherry and Logan berry lead on the palate. The finish is long and lingering with fresh berries, cola and just the right amount of vanilla and clove from the restrained use of new French barrels. Enjoy this wine right at cellar temperature for optimum drinking pleasure.
Vineyard Notes: In the Southern part of Santa Maria Valley lies the 1.5 acre Makenna’s Vineyard. This exceptional vineyard sees abundant morning sun while being sheltered from the wind making it perfect for producing Pinot with great elegance and finesse. The soil is dominated by loam and clay.
