The grace and allure of Weir Pinots is undeniable; aromas of red currant, strawberry compote, white rose petals, black plum, gala apple, red candy hearts, hint of raspberry, cedar spice, marionberry, sage and cinnamon spice… the mouthfeel is graceful, mouthcoating, silky, soft, caressing and savory with an airy and vibrant balance that feels like a 12 million thread count set of sheets. Wines from this vineyard send most of us over the moon.
Weir is our most far-flung vineyard located in the Yorkville Highlands. The vineyard’s elevation (850’-1000’) and aspect place it squarely in the path of cold air flowing in from the Mendocino coast. The vineyard incorporates several soil types and the topsoil is thin, limiting vine growth and vigor, while promoting concentration in the resulting wines.
