All candied Maraschino cherry in the aroma, this turns darker in the mouth, heading toward potent fruit tannin, mostly closed but showing hints of brightness. It feels well built, and may develop more intrigue with bottle age.

A new luxury tier from Mendocino Wine Company, the folks who also produce the Parducci wines, Moniker Pinot is softly aromatic, leathery in dark berry fruit and dry, made in a big, rich style. Fruit is sourced from Anderson Valley, and also from inland Potter and Redwood valleys.
