Mark West Pinot Noir
Mark West was founded in 1978 with one desire only: To
craft remarkable Pinot Noir that delivers exceptional quality at an affordable
price. With equal parts patience, hard work, and passion, we've followed our
dream from vineyard to barrel to bottle.
We selected grapes from vineyards in the finest
cool-climate regions of California in order to bring you a balanced
fruit-forward Pinot Noir. After early morning harvesting, we gently crush and
destem the fruit. We then ferment it in small stainless steel tanks, with daily
punch-downs and pump-overs...basically, that's what we do to help get the great
flavor and color you love. After a light pressing, we age the wine with French
oak, then we blend it, bottle it, and you enjoy it.
TASTING NOTES The original. Medium-bodied with black
cherry, cola, strawberry, plum, and soft tannins. No wonder this Pinot is a favorite.
