Our Solomon Hills Pinot Noir offers an exceptional expression of our cool climate region, with bright, fruit flavors beautifully balanced by dried florals and vegetation.

Considered to be the coldest vineyard in our region, Solomon Hills is able to yield Pinot Noir grapes that achieve an incredible balance of bright, fruity tones, dried florals and vegetation.
