Blue Quail is a project by Guinness McFadden of McFadden Vineyards. He’s been growing grapes organically from his Mendocino vineyard for over 40 years. This is a solid Pinot Noir that shows the forthright fruity aspect of Pinot Noir. A quite deep color and spicy earthy cola aromas are followed by nicely ripe plum and black cherry on the palate. The palate offers a filling sensation and the firm tannins add some nice grip during the finish.
