The Brittan’s purchased their 128-acre property in the foothills of the Coastal Range in the McMinnville AVA, where they have 29 acres planted to Pinot noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. Robert brings extensive viticultural and winemaking experience to their venture, having worked as winemaker at Far Niente, St. Andrew’s ...New York, New Jersey, California
The rich, opulent color reveals Italian plum and lavender with hits of black licorice, charcuterie and sage. The palate is supple with black raspberry and cedar.
Wine Enthusiast"This black-fruited offering has the winery’s signature stamp all over it, with
a vein of herb and wet rock that slices through the aromas and into the palate. Tangy acids prop up the blackberry and black-cherry fruit, and suggest that this can age. Drink now through 2030 at least." - December 2017
James Suckling“The dark purple color is impressive with aromas of blackberries and blueberries galore. Yet there is restraint and tone to this young red with a fantastic texture and intensity on the finish.” – James Suckling, November 2017
