Winemaker's Notes

Our 2019 Mariafeld, Pinot Noir, prized for its ability to develop color and tannin in cool conditions, is typically the darkest and most brooding of our Pinot Noirs. Our 2019 vintage showcases the black and blue fruit notes and lovely spice elements we typically find in our Mariafeld selection. Blackberry, sassafras and allspice come to the fore with hints of violets on the nose. The wine displays a wonderful balance on the palate that finishes decidedly on the refreshing side.
