This 50 acre vineyard was planted in 1995 by friends and growers Gary
Franscioni and Gary Pisoni along the terraces of the Santa Lucia mountain
range, overlooking the Salinas River Valley.
With plenty of lovely, rich tannins, this Pinot offers up flavors of dark
red fruit, subtle oak and nutmeg-clove spice.
Miner is a dynamic family-owned winery tucked along the eastern hills of
the Oakville appellation in the heart of Napa Valley. Founded in 1998 by Dave
and Emily Miner, Miner Family Winery crafts reserve-style wines by sourcing
fruit from Napa Valley and other specially selected California vineyards .
Winemakers Gary Brookman & Stacy Vogel uses a combination of old
world winemaking techniques and modern technology to make wines
that reflect the unique characteristics of individual vineyards or terroir
where specific varietals grow best. This fusion of superb vineyard sites and
thoughtful winemaking allows Miner to deliver elegant, expressive wines.
