It is lovely and also a terrific value. Bright red-toned fruit and floral notes give the Sonoma County Pinot much of its considerable appeal.
Banshee Wines was founded by three friends (Steve Graf, Baron Ziegler and Noah Dorrance) who shared a passion for wine and a lifelong dream of owning their own winery. They have recruited an A+ winemaking team led by Ross Cobb formerly the winemaker at Flowers Winery (Hirsch, Williams Selyem), Katy Wilson (LaRue, Flowers), & Tim Milos (Stags Leap, Opus One). In 2009, they pooled their money together to make the first vintage of Banshee Wines Pinot Noir and since then have built up a stable of quality sources for Pinot fruit from the finest AVAs in California. The Banshee winery runs on lease agreements with the vineyards and focuses on growing Pinot and Chardonnay grapes on the extreme Sonoma Coast.
