Light and silky, this wine offers a simple flavor spectrum. An aroma of Five Spice and strawberry jam, plums, wild cherry and a hint of white pepper on the front to mid-palate. A creamy texture and dusty rose petal round out the wine at the finish. 1400 cases produced. The winery is named after owner Mike Merriman, a Texas native with a passion for Oregon and the world-class Pinot Noir produced there. Cummins Road Pinot Noir is made from the fruit from the middle to the bottom of the vineyard ridge. Handpicked and sorted, the clusters are allowed to cold soak for 15 days before fermenting, in order to extract color and increase palate weight. The wine is racked off after fermentation into second and third year French oak barrels, which allows the wine to slowly gain a fuller, rounder palate.
