When we set out to produce Pinot Noir at Donelan Family Wines, our desire was to produce a wine that embraces our favorite aspects of great Pinot Noir from Sonoma County. The journey has taken us to the 2014 vintage where we believe terroir and technique have met at a beautiful crossroad. The 2014 is now made with fruit from predominately two vineyards: Steiner Ranch, perched high on Sonoma Mountain, and the coastal vineyard, Devoto.
The two vineyards find harmony on the palate and produce a supple, delicious Pinot Noir. The presence of tannin suggests many years of enjoyment however hard to resist now!Visit Our Store
