It is easy to be seduced by the bright hues and youthful nature of The Flyer – bergamot,
rose petals and earth tones lead the aromas on this Sonoma Coast blend. Rich and dense
upon entry, there is a ton of complexity and provocative layers of black fruit – specifically
black cherries and dried raspberries that are supported by beautiful acidity and silky
tannins. A hint of roasted vanilla bean shows through on a lengthy and persistent finish.
MacPhail Wines are a collaboration between Tim and Sabrina Persson, 5th generation Hess Family, and well-known Winemaker Matt Courtney, who share a common belief that wine is art with a splash of science. The little red wagon symbolizes timeless design and exceptional quality. Tim and Sabrina hope their children will have many adventures in their little red wagon as they take MacPhail into the next generation. The wines are an exploration of the Sonoma and Anderson Valley coastline with the goal to preserve artisanal techniques and capture all the potential in the glass.
Located in what is deemed “the gateway to the Sonoma Coast,” the Sangiacomo Lakeville Vineyards were planted by the Sangiacomo family in 1990 during the rebirth of the Petaluma Gap region. Wind and fog cover the vineyards in the early morning and late afternoon hours, which allows for extra hangtime and helps build complexity of flavor in the grapes. This environment combined with the Sangiacomo family’s passion and appreciation for the land, help to produce some of the most premium Pinot Noir grapes of the region.
