IWR, Owen Bargreen
The 2016 Blue Jay Pinot Noir is an Anderson Valley bottling consisting of fruit sourced from the Corners Vineyard in the town of Booneville. This deep colored Pinot Noir begins with aromas of dark berry, cranberry, orange, and peat moss as earthy tones come into play. This shows a bright acidity and wonderful mouthfeel with notable weight. Dark fruits mingle with red fruits in the glass as this shows terrific richness and terroir.

From the Anderson Valley in the northern part of California, the 2016 Pinot Noir Blue Jay offers a similar smoky, meaty profile as well as medium-bodied richness, light tannin, and a charming, elegant style on the palate...

Exceptional Appellation
Due to its proximity to cool, steady winds from the Pacific Ocean

Our 2016 Blue Jay is sourced from The Corners Vineyard, located on the outskirts of Boonville. Planted to hillside slopes with southern exposure, cobbled clay loam soils and rock outcroppings, the vineyard is at a high elevation of 500 to 800 feet above sea level.
