Wine Profile

Production Notes
Varietal Composition: 100% Pinot Noir
Winemaker Notes
At more than 20 years of age, the beautifully mature vines of Ryan Vineyard have produced a stunning wine with enticing aromas of Rainier cherry, lavender, yellow plum and raspberry. On the plush palate, supple tannins and luxurious flavors of blackberry and cherry cola emerge, with hints of black pepper lingering throughout a long, complex finish.
Production
After a cool winter, the 2020 growing season began with spring rains that replenished our soils on Mt. Harlan and set the stage for an excellent vintage. After a late-March budbreak, we enjoyed temperate, sunny days and cool nights throughout spring and summer, allowing the grapes to slowly ripen, while preserving the bright natural acids that we prize. With no significant heat events, the 2020 vintage produced age-worthy wines with enticing aromatics, lovely freshness and purity, and beautifully delineated varietal flavors.
