Memoirs is my fond personal tribute to my family. This year’s label features a picture of my brother Nasser who passed away this year. He will be missed. Wish you all good health.
The 2019 Memoirs is a blend of Pinot Noir crafted from all the vineyards I source my fruit from.
The nose has incredible aromatics of black cherry, graham cracker, nutmeg and allspice. Spicy and vibrant on the palate, with layers of black and red fruit. It's a gorgeous & complex wine that is approachable young but will cellar for many years. Best from 2021 to 2032.
Alcohol: 12.75% Ph: 3.58
Production: 400 Cases
After a long and careful search to find the best site possible to plant Pinot Noir, Mohamad “Mo” Ayoub found the land he dreamt about nestled in the Dundee Hills. Untouched to vines – Mo saw the perfect potential to plant Pinot Noir and create a sustainable, healthy and top producing vineyard. The volcanic jory soils, south-facing slopes and fertile land made it an easy decision to plant four prized acres of vines in 2001.
The Dundee Hills appellation is highly respected and known for its bright and elegant wines. In 2004, Mo was able to unveil the potential of his land by producing a wine from the vines he meticulously planted and cared for. The results proved to be flourishing, providing bright fruit and unique complexity, creating an elegant Pinot Noir. Ayoub is committed to producing a limited amount of Pinot Noir of the highest quality.
