Highlighting lush, layered flavors, bright acidity and impeccably balanced French oak, Migration is dedicated to crafting wines from the finest cool-climate winegrowing regions. This dedication led us to establish our estate vineyard in the heart of the legendary Russian River Valley. This wine is a selection of the best blocks and barrels of wine from this exceptional site. Though rich and supple, with alluring flavors of blackberry and Bing cherry, it is also a beautifully complex, terroir-driven wine.

Winemaker Notes
A lush and evocative expression of Russian River Valley Pinot Noir, this wine reveals aromas of Bing cherry, pomegranate and raspberry, as well as earthy undertones that add nuance and depth. On the palate, it is rich and luxurious, with layers of pure varietal fruit and baking spices, seamlessly integrated oak and a vibrant underlying acidity that carries the wine to a long, balanced finish.
2017 offered idyllic growing conditions with plentiful winter and spring rains, which led to an excellent fruit set. While the summer was warm, with occasional heat spikes, healthy canopies and thoughtful pruning provided ideal dappled sunlight on the vines. Just as our Chardonnay and Pinot Noir were achieving ideal ripeness, a major heat event hit the valley. The result was an extremely brisk harvest with long nights of hand-picking and days full of sorting, destemming and pressing. While the pace of harvest was challenging, the fruit came in beautifully, fermented flawlessly and yielded wines with vibrant fruit and lovely acidity.

We enjoyed this wine with a rustic pizza night and found some interesting results. The first thing I noticed was the rich color. It pretty much matches the neck band around the bottle - a deep burgundy color. Next, I could detect a light spiced aroma that is mentioned in the description as baking spices. I noticed such a difference in flavor depending on what I was eating at the moment. It went great with the beef pizza we had. And when I ate it with the Asian chopped salad it was a marriage made in heaven. It completely smoothed out the wine. However, it did not pair so well with the spicy pepperoni. The two flavors together seemed to conflict more than complement one another. I would suggest this for a holiday meal or special dinner.
