94 Points - Ken's Wine Guide

Winemaker's Notes

Three Sons “Estate Grown” Pinot Noir is the result of the two best barrels produced from our Los Amigos property located at our winery, planted in 2009. Two clones were included in this limited bottling: clone 115 and 777. Three sons: Stefan, Nicholas and Evan Merriam.

Tasting Notes

Bright red hues, aromas of red fruit, blueberry, raspberry, ripe cherry and light tea leaves. This wine has a soothing mouthfeel with flavors of cherry pie, vanilla ice cream and notes of mild baking spice. With elegance and grace, this wine exemplifies the magnificence and power of this beautiful Pinot Noir. The top two barrels out of thirty were picked for this wine.
