Wine Making Notes:

The Cummins Road is made up of grapes from the new south facing block #13. This block is planted entirely to the Pinot Noir clone Wädenswil, which traces its origin to Switzerland. The extra degrees of heat from the southern exposure ensure a nice, even ripeness, giving the wine its full character. Restrained use of French oak during the wine making process rounds out the palate and gives it a creamy mouthfeel. We are proud to produce this value-oriented wine completely from Merriman Vineyard fruit and to let it serve as an introduction to the vineyard.
