Estate Pinot Noir | Johan Vineyards

The goal behind the Estate bottling is to make a wine that is representative of the whole Johan Vineyards farm. They achieve this on a micro scale by selecting small parcels of fruit from every combination of rootstock/scion, slope, soil profile, and vine age on the property. Fresh, lively and precise with some black cherry fruit and dense structure.
