The Murphy-Goode Pinot Noir comes from vineyards up and down the coast of California, including Arroyo Seco, Santa Maria Valley, and Monterey. Cool conditions in these prime growing spots keep grapes at a perfect balance between vibrant dark fruit character and bright acidity. Notes of vanilla from aging in French and American oak add complexity to the intense black cherry aromas and flavors.
Winemaker Dave Ready Jr. is the embodiment of the Murphy-Goode philosophy, a serious winery built around a common concept: don't take life so seriously. He is a master of balance—evaluating and integrating each barrel to create a blend that is greater than the sum of its parts. He has a talent for smoothing out the edges of each component to ensure consistent, yet complex wines.
