About This Wine

Adler Fels Winery has long embraced a "more is better" philosophy.

From its perch high on a crest in the Mayacamas Mountains, Adler Fels (German for “Eagle Rock”) has a grand view of California’s most famous vineyards — from Sonoma to Napa and beyond. The view illustrates the philosophy of the winemakers selecting the best vineyards from which to craft their wines.

For 35 years, Adler Fels has made award-winning wines through a simple focus: excellent sourcing and a world-class winemaking team that allow the qualities of the grapes to shine through to the glass. In the case of the 2014 “Eagle Rock” Pinot Noir, the sourcing includes vineyards in both Santa Barbara and Sonoma counties.

“Making good Pinot is both a physical and mental exercise,” says vintner Aaron Bader. “And then it's so darn delicious. It’s sexy, luscious, with that sweet perfume, a hint of maple syrup and lush fruit.”

About Pinot Noir

Very sensitive to climate and handling in winery, this fickle grape of Burgundy yields low tannin and acidity, medium colors and lifespan. Classic berry, cherry and currant flavors, silky textures typically balanced with spicy or floral tones.
