The first of the thrilling 2021s! Ayres captures the ideal mix of exuberance and Pinot purity in this delightfully fresh and precocious bottle. Juicy berries and cherries abound as Ayres does what they do best: continually over-deliver bang for the buck. The backbone of this fantastic value is Ayres' Ribbon Ridge estate fruit.
Winemaker Brad McLeroy honed his winemaking skills at Domaine Drouhin Oregon under the direction of Veronique Drouhin. His winemaking at Ayres completes his circle of wine experience from retailer to distributor to producer. According to McLeroy, “My wines will always have a soul. Open a bottle and it shows… We believe our wine gives voice to the soil. We believe that our wine guides us as much as we guide our wine. It’s about reciprocity. It’s a relationship that begins in the vineyard, from the first sign of bud break to the last cluster harvested. We have the luxury of growing the grapes, making the wine on-site, and living in the company of the vines. We love what we do here.”
