Winemaker's Tasting Notes

The expressive nose is full of floral notes and delicate fruit. There are bright crisp acids that blend with minerality on the mid-palate, offering flavors of subtle strawberry, rose petals, other floral notes, with hints of apricot. The refreshing finish lingers and cleanses with floral fruit. This is a wine you can enjoy with a meal but is spectacular on its own.

Food Pairing Suggestions
Pinot Noir is known to be one of the most food friendly red wines. Pair this Pinot Noir with your Thanksgiving holiday meal, especially turkey, duck and mushroom dishes. Lighter body makes it a nice pairing for fatty fish, such as seared salmon and tuna, but it also makes this wine a fantastic pairing for rare filet mignon. Try it with wood fired pizzas, earthy cheeses such as aged Camembert.

Winemaker: Rick Davis

Fed by his life-long passion for all things gourmet and artistic, Rick’s epicurean and creative endeavors led to his graduate work in regional planning at University of Pennsylvania and a career as a leather artisan. However, he found the perfect balance of craftmanship, sensory experiences and life sciences in winemaking.

Within the wine industry, Rick’s desire to improve upon the processes and final product has proven very successful over 30 years. He specializes in cool climate varietals like Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, and has worked with many of the top producers on the Sonoma Coast. During the 2001 and 2002 vintages, Rick worked with winemaker Greg Lafollette, supervising the production of the 2001 Tandem Halleck Vineyard Pinot Noir that won the “Pinot Noir Summit” in 2002. Rick has become intimately familiar with the Halleck Vineyard Estate terroir, and in 2005, came on as Winemaker. Rick provides oversight and direction for the Halleck Vineyard winemaking, consulting Jennifer and Ross on final blends.
