2019 Wadenswil Pinot Noir

Our first vintage of 100% single clone Wadenswil Pinot Noir from the Muska Vineyard in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA. A beautifully balanced Pinot Noir with notes of wild strawberries, red plum, luxardo cherry, and a long-lasting saline finish.

Only 85 cases produced!

Flavor Notes

Dark Cherry
Sea Salt

91 Points | Wine & Spirits - The Wädenswil component here confers a kind of distant fruit, raspberry and cherry flavors delivered behind earthy, tobacco-laced tannins. The texture is compact and beguiling but still a work in progress. For the cellar.

- Patrick J. Comiskey
Fresh and rich with expressive notes of red fruits, black cherry cordial, and a salty, and peppery finish.

What a perfect summer wine! Enjoy this wine with homemade corn dogs, add a little honey to the cornmeal batter along with a splash of sparkling water, enjoy as is or with your favorite condiment.

A slight departure from our traditional pinot noirs, the 2019 Wadenswil represents the first time we have bottled a wine with mixed whole cluster lots from the Muska Vineyard. The resulting wine shows savory garrigue, spice, black peppercorn and luxardo cherry dominate the nose. On the palate the wine bursts with umami, bright red cherry, ultra-fine tannins and a quenching saline finish that rounds the wine out. This is a wine that was built to age gracefully.
