The Waits-Mast Pinot Noir,
Mendocino County is a select blend of different barrels from our
vineyard designates wines. This wine is blend of Pinot Noir from
two different vineyards – Mariah Vineyard in Mendocino Ridge and
Oppenlander Vineyard in Comptche (Mendocino County). The Mendocino
Ridge site sees more sun because it is above the fog line and the
Comptche site ripens later since it is more within the fog belt,
about 8 miles from the coast.
The 2014 blend brings
together the characteristics of each of these sites, with a mix
dark fruit and earth tones from Mariah Vineyard and bright red
cherry hightones from Oppenlander Vineyard. The two flavor profiles
come together in a taught package with mineral and cranberry notes
that finish smooth on the palate.
