Mark West Winery specializes in Pinot Noir. Sourced from California's coastal appellations, these vineyards provide grapes of intense fruit aromatics and flavors. After a gentle crushing, the grapes were fermented in small tanks with daily punch downs to extract color and flavors. Pressed lightly, the wine was then aged in French and Hungarian oak for approximately eight months before bottling. Red and black cherry flavors abound with a note of spice from oak aging.
