2015 Meredith Mitchell Vineyard Pinot noir
Exemplifies the richness of the McMinnville AVA and the syrah-like color of our newest vineyard.
From our newest estate vineyard in the Coast Ranges of the McMinnville AVA comes a Pinot noir that exemplifies the richness of this region and the signature syrah-like color of the site.
Abundant and diverse aromatics shine: cigar box, raspberry, melted chocolate, and a hint of toasted marshmallow are as striking as the wine’s gorgeous color. The palate ushers in spice, orange zest and layers of red berries and currants. The finish pops with cranberries and caramel, delightfully balanced and intertwined on the finish.

Adding to their estate vineyard on the red hills bench, Winderlea secured the Meredith Mitchell Vineyard, located in McMinnville, as an estate holding through a long-term lease.
