Tasting Notes

Aromas of ripe red cherry, pomegranate, cola, sassafrass, cremini mushroom, and crushed rocks. The palate is balanced and juicy with lots of ripe red cherry, strawberry, and cranberry notes, that lead into notes of overturned earth, dried mushroom, and black tea.

About

Matt Duffy was working at Bacchus & Venus in Sausalito north of San Francisco selling wines. Along with his wife, Sara Vaughn, they fell in love with Pinot Noir. Duffy worked a harvest at Siduri and then began winemaking at Vinify, a custom crush winery. In 2009, the couple bought one ton of Pinot Noir grapes and made their first wine under the Vaughn Duffy Wines label. Vaughn Duffy is now part of the boom of first-generation winemaking families in California, in a time when hard work, creativity and a little help from your friends can trump the need for huge amounts of capital investment.
