FEATURED WINE OF THE MONTH⠀
Vision Cellars ‘Rosella’s Vineyard’ Pinot Noir 2014 | Santa Lucia Highlands, California ⠀
Sold By The Bottle Only $115⠀
Born the son of a moonshiner, Mac McDonald fell in love with wine at a young age and decided to pursue a career as a winemaker before most of us were able to legally drink. After securing his land in 1995, Mac focused primarily on Pinot Noir in the Monterey area of California offering his first vintage two years later. In addition to establishing his reputation as a talented winemaker, Mac also founded the Association of African American Vintners. At Bargello, we were lucky enough to secure a handful of bottles from his single vineyard – Rosella’s Vineyard. This wine is unlike any Pinot Noir you’ve had al while carrying the elegance and finesse this fickle grape is renowned for. Heavily extracted and brimming with ripe cherry notes, its brisk acidity keeps the wine light enough for your tried and true Californian Pinot lover, but it’s depth and structure beg to invite those with an affinity to Cabernets. Mac struck a beautiful balance in this 2014 bottling – we only have a few bottles in stock! Let us know your thoughts on this stunner of a wine.
