Migration is dedicated to crafting wines from the finest cool-climate winegrowing regions highlighting lush fruit, bright acidity and impeccably balanced oak. This dedication has taken us to the storied vineyards of California’s Sonoma Coast, where clockwork fog and Goldridge sandy loam soils have contributed to a Pinot Noir with beautiful high-tone red fruit flavors of cherry, cranberry and strawberry and enticing hints of orange-cinnamon spice.

Winemaker Notes
This complex cool-climate Pinot Noir displays lovely texture and tension. On the nose, layers of blackberry, raspberry, moist earth and fresh-cut grass evolve and expand over time. The robust dark berry flavors continue on the palate, where they are underscored by a firm, sophisticated structure that adds nuance and grip.
Production
Harvest 2016 was another banner year for wine quality in the Sonoma Coast. Though budbreak was early due to warm weather in February and March, a cool spring led to delayed flowering and some shatter, lowering yields compared to the previous three vintages. The combination of an early budbreak and a moderate-sized crop led to one of the earliest harvest start dates on record. Though harvest was early, ideal temperate weather in the run-up to harvest resulted in wines of exceptional concentration and purity.

Loved this wine, tried it at the Goldeneye winery and had to buy a bottle. Amazing stuff for the price.
