Macphail Winery Pinot Noir Sundawg Ridge Vineyard 2011

External Review by WineExpress.com:

MacPhail has created a cult following for their intensely flavored power-packed Pinot Noirs. At 280 feet elevation, among rolling hills, old apple orchards and chestnut groves, the Sundawg Ridge Vineyard sits above the fog many mornings. This 6.9-acre, sustainably farmed vineyard was planted by the Kensler Family in 1999 and benefits from exceptional exposure, temperate microclimate and mineral rich Goldridge soils. This small vineyard consistently comes up big and this vintage carries on that tradition. Grapes were hand picked and hand sorted twice. A 5 day cold soak preceded fermentation and the wine age sur lie in 50% new French oak for 11 months. 90+ scores across the board including Wine Enthusiast Magazine who gave it 93 saying "The Sequana Winery has had enormous success with this vineyard over the years, and now MacPhail dips into it, with impressive results. The first impression is of acidity, mouthwatering and tangy. Then the flavors explode into a rainbow of red cherries, pomegranates, persimmons and exotic spices."
