Pinot Noir is grown around the world and is considered one of the most difficult grapes to cultivate, requiring diligence and skill in the vineyard. When grown and vinified properly, it produces elegant, delicate wines that reflect the terroir of the vineyard.
We have 31 acres of Pinot Noir planted in our vineyard, which is uniquely suited for ripening this difficult varietal. When we harvest, there are beautiful aromas surrounding the crusher. The wine is garnet in color, with white pepper notes finishing and a nice rounded mouth-feel and structure. There are aromas of raspberry and fresh pine tree. The wine is fruit driven, possessing a creamy texture.

“Piquant black raspberry, sweet anise, thyme and game notes show on the nose of this bottling from a new brand that took over the Addamo Vineyards property. On the palate, there’s a nice interplay between snappy cranberry fruit and the garrigue.” —Matt Kettman
