Winemaking Notes
To create this perfectly blended Pinot Noir private label, expert sommeliers from a handful of Mandarin Oriental properties spent three days in the Sonoma Coast, tasting barrels of varying lots and clones from the Pinot Noir grape at Hirsch Vineyards. The team specifically chose four distinct clones from four separate vineyard lots and blended them to make our own signature wine.

Tasting notes
·         The wine is a bright, garnet color. 
·         Floral notes are immediately present on the nose, followed by red fruits on the palate, lightly balanced acidity with a long mineral finish.
·         Fruit notes include McIntosh Apple, raspberry, and Bing cherry.
·         Floral and spice notes include dried roses, lavender, thyme, and white pepper.
·         Earth and Mineral notes include graphite and ocean breeze.

This Pinot Noir private label is limited to Mandarin Oriental, San Francisco and our sister properties throughout the United States.
