Winestyr Review

On the hillsides cradling the Russian River, this Pinot Noir is made from McFadden's finest single vineyard, estate grown organic grapes. Don't let the light body on this Pinot Noir fool you - this is a super complex wine with layers of fruit and earthy flavors. Dry cherry, fall forest, and earthy mushroom come to mind as this incredibly food-friendly wine makes its way across your palate.

What We Love

  • Smooth and elegant
  • Earthy
  • Organic

Drink this elegant Pinot Noir with grilled salmon

Experience

McFadden Farm is an amazing place founded by an amazing man by the name of Guinness McFadden. The farm generates all of its own power and actually gives back to the grid thanks to sustainable energy sources. All the fruit is organically grown which is becoming Mendocino's trademark. If you get a chance to visit the tasting room in Hopland, CA (about 45 minutes North of Santa Rosa), make sure to tell John Cesano we sent you. Don't forget to grab lunch or dinner (and beers) at the Hopland Tap House which is two doors down - it's one of the coolest pubs in Northern California.

Winery

With names like Guinness and Jameson McFadden, it might seem odd that this family ended up in the wine business. However, over the years, McFadden's grapes have represented a significant portion of many award winning wines in Napa, Sonoma, and Mendocino counties. Unlike many organic farms, McFadden Vineyard was organic from the very beginning. These wines are made from organically grown grapes - meaning that at no time were any chemical fertilizers or pesticides ever used in the production of the grapes in McFadden's wines.
