Highlighting lush, layered flavors, bright acidity and impeccably balanced French oak, Migration is dedicated to crafting wines from the finest cool-climate winegrowing regions. Planted in 2003, and farmed by the Dierberg family, Drum Canyon Vineyard is located on the eastern edge of the famed Sta. Rita Hills winegrowing region, where cool, coastal breezes help to produce a beautifully structured Pinot Noir, with velvety tannins and pure notes of pomegranate, dark cherry and clove.

Wine Profile

Production Notes
Varietal Composition: 100% Pinot Noir
Winemaker Notes
Shaped by cooling winds off the Pacific Ocean, Drum Canyon has produced a rich and dramatic Pinot Noir with lush layers of blueberry, boysenberry and cassis. On the palate, a supple texture and bright, balanced acidity frame the dark berry flavors, with hints of wild sage and sweet vanilla adding complexity to the long, satisfying finish.
The 2018 growing season in Santa Barbara County provided a summer that alternated between mild and warm, with a cool autumn that allowed the grapes to remain on the vine until they reached ideal ripeness. While the quality of the grapes was phenomenal, our overall yields for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir were down due to the extremely small size of the clusters and berries. The majority of our fruit was harvested in late September, yielding wines with beautifully balanced acidity, exceptional weight and texture, and complex varietal flavors. Overall, it was a fantastic harvest and an absolutely stellar vintage.
