Cases Produced

The Mueller 2011 “Tempi” Pinot Noir was produced from a selected vineyard block of a single Pinot Noir clone, Dijon 777. Situated on a well-drained, gravely site which is part of Vino Farms, this vineyard block is less than one mile from the Russian River and it experiences the full impact of cooling fog which travels up the river banks.

This specific Pinot Noir clone is characterized by its intensely bright, big, luscious flavors which are very evident in the 2011 “Tempi” Pinot Noir. Ruby in color, the “Tempi” Pinot Noir is bursting with sweet ripe strawberry, cherry, and toasted oak aromas. The palate is full bodied with fine grained tannins and soft yet rich flavors of fresh strawberry, oak, and anise. This wine will age gracefully over the next several years.
