About the Winery:
Banshee Wines was born in 2009 at a bar in the Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco. With money borrowed from friends and family, the original founders launched Banshee Wines with eight barrels of coveted Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. The initial intent was to make wines that tasted like the best California had to offer, but were priced so that everyone could enjoy them. This band of wine industry insiders is dedicated to producing benchmark wines without the cult wine prices. They specialize in finding hidden gems in other wineries' cellars and then blending those barrels to create killer wines. For every barrel Banshee takes, they pass on 15 more that don't make the cut.
Hints of maple, cherry and the inside of a cedar wood box lead to an inviting, medium-bodied pinot noir. Bright flavors of juicy cherry and pomegranate touched with chocolate and a hint of soft barrel spice finish with silky, smooth tannins.
