Durell Vineyard, initially known for chardonnay, has quickly become a darling in the world of luxury pinot noir. This particular pinot is planted on the backside of rolling hills throughout the vineyard, spanning three different AVAs. The terroir shows in the range soils from the property. From cobbley clay loam and volcanic lava rock to rocky loam, the diversity of Durell begins in the ground itself. The 2019 vintage is back in classic form, showcasing dark red fruits of Santa Rosa plum and baked cherry, with layers of brown butter and a meatiness in the backbone. Culminating with notes of white pepper and baking spices, the silky complexity of this wine represents its illustrious birthplace.
This wine has sold out. Next vintage coming in Fall of 2022.
