2016 Mahoney Family Vineyards Pinot Noir Las Brisas Vineyard DOUBLE GOLD MEDAL WINNER - 2019 S.F. International Wine Competition
The absence of extreme heat in the summer of 2016 gave the fruit an extended hang-time and this equated to more flavorful and structured wines. From our first tastings, all of our 2016 estate Pinot Noirs showed an abundance of depth that showcased the denser, darker fruit typically found in our Mahoney Ranch vineyard in Napa. The brighter flavor/aromatic elements of our Las Brisas Vineyard Pinot Noir are evident here, but you’ll also notice ample texture and layer upon layer of darker fruit character like cherry, blackberry and plum. We bottled only 120 cases of this wine!
