Vineyard: This exquisite Pinot Noir hails from a harmonious blend of two esteemed vineyards: the renowned Suacci Vineyard, known for its vibrant fruit, and the historic Earl Stephens' Vineyard, offering depth and complexity. Both lie within the coveted Anderson Valley AVA in California, bathed in cool coastal breezes and fog, ideal for nurturing Pinot Noir grapes.

Winemaking: Crafted with meticulous care, the 2021 Fay's Reserve represents the four finest barrels of the vintage. Vaughn Duffy employs gentle whole-cluster fermentation and minimal intervention, allowing the grapes' true character to shine through.

Tasting Notes: Prepare for a symphony of flavors. Aromas burst with ripe cherry, raspberry, and hints of rose petal, accented by earthy notes and a touch of spice. On the palate, the wine is a silky dance of vibrant red fruit, followed by hints of black tea, forest floor, and subtle oak, leading to a long, elegant finish.

Varietal: Pinot Noir, the world's most captivating grape, takes center stage here. Vaughn Duffy captures its inherent elegance and complexity, showcasing the unique terroir of Anderson Valley.

AVA: Anderson Valley AVA, nestled between rolling hills and the Mendocino Coast, provides the perfect climate and sun exposure for Pinot Noir. Its cool marine influence leads to slow ripening, resulting in wines with vibrant acidity, concentrated fruit, and nuanced earthiness.

Production: This limited-edition release is a true collector's gem. Only four barrels were produced, reflecting the exceptional quality and meticulous selection process. Be prepared for a truly special drinking experience.

Alcohol: The 2021 Fay's Reserve Pinot Noir sits at a comfortable 13.5% alcohol, ensuring a balanced and elegant expression of the fruit and terroir.

A Final Note: More than just a wine, Fay's Reserve is a tribute to a beloved daughter. Each sip whispers of family legacy, meticulous craftsmanship, and a deep respect for the land. Prepare for a truly memorable Pinot Noir experience, where quality meets passion in every bottle.
