Since our first vintage in 2001, Migration has developed a refined and compelling style that balances vibrancy and finesse. Defined by the idea of movement, Migration is dedicated to going beyond our Anderson Valley origins and exploring Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the finest cool-climate winegrowing regions. This exploration has taken us to the storied vineyards of California’s Russian River Valley, where clockwork fog and Goldridge sandy loam soils have contributed to a Pinot Noir with beautiful, high-tone red fruit flavors of strawberry, cherry and cranberry and enticing hints of orange-cinnamon spice.

Winemaker Notes
Savory and complex with enticing fruit aromatics, this wine captures the essence of Russian River Valley Pinot. Sophisticated aromas of bacon fat, baking spice and forest floor add nuance to intense layers of blackberry, cherry and preserved strawberry. On the palate, this medium-bodied wine has a lovely tannin structure with refreshing acidity that supports the fruit and draws the wine to a long and satisfying close.
Production
With near-ideal temperatures throughout the growing season and no significant heat events, we were able to set an excellent crop and achieve optimum ripeness in all of our red varieties. We further enhanced quality by dropping any grape bunches that did not meet our exacting standards. This helped the remaining fruit to develop concentrated varietal character, which resulted in wines that are dark, full, flavorful and very well balanced.

My boss ordered a Pinot Noir for our christmas party at Flemings LA Live and everyone loved it. I called back and asked Eduardo to find out who makes it because everyone kept talking about how good it was. This is a very smooth and great tasting wine that I have since added to my shopping list.
