Mirassou California Pinot Noir About the Wine: Fruit forward and approachable in style, our 2010 Mirassou Pinot Noir has flavors of cherry, strawberry and red currant, which are supported by light vanilla and oak notes. This wine is well balanced with a round, full mouthfeel. Viticulture Notes: The Pinot Noir grapes for this wine were carefully selected from several of California’s most renowned regions, including Monterey County and Sonoma County. The 2010 growing season brought several challenges to these regions; a wet spring delayed bud break, and a late summer heat wave stressed the vines. But, the warmer temperatures helped the grapes to reach maturity and develop rich flavor characteristics. Although yields were lower than normal, the resulting grapes displayed remarkable quality.
