Drew Mendocino Ridge Pinot Noir


The Mid Elevation is a Mendocino Ridge appellation Pinot Noir, made to showcase the coastal ridges of western Mendocino County, namely the Mendocino Ridge AVA rather than a focus on any one vineyard. Mid Elevation equates to the middle elevations in the AVA, 800 to 1400 ft. These elevations are closer to the fog line coming off the Pacific, resulting in cooler maritime temps throughout the season allowing for a longer ripening period. 20% whole cluster fermentation with native yeasts, and matured for eleven months in 88% neutral/12% new French oak.
