Bliss Family Vineyards Pinot Noir 2019, Mendocino, California

Produced from grapes grown in Mendocino County, where the cooling influences are ideal conditions for Pinot Noir. In the late 1930s, Grandfather, Irv Bliss, was drawn to Mendocino County by its beautiful rolling hills and unspoiled land. He found himself on Old Toll Road looking out over a picturesque ranch that he dreamed of acquiring. Years later, Irv heard of a Mendocino property for sale. He gathered all his savings and headed to the auction to bid on the property sight unseen. As fate would have it, the land Irv purchased was the original 450 acre ranch that captivated him. “Coming from our Estate vineyards and select Mendocino growers, this Pinot Noir has aromas of cream soda and raspberry candy which are followed by fruit forward flavors. The elegant finish is highlighted by notes of sweet cranberry and hints of earthiness.” – From the winery
