Shane Finley crafts small lots of hand-crafted, terroir specific wines from an enviable selection of cooler climate vineyards. Previously, at Kosta Browne, Paul Hobbs, Copain, Torbreck and Pierre Gaillard, Shane is now winemaker at Lynmar Estate. This worldly education and a passion for nuance, balance and originality results in a few dozen cases released to distribution from this rising star.

The 2016 Ma Fille is a saignée of Pinot Noir (eighty-five percent), Syrah (ten percent), and Grenache (five percent). The individual lots were fermented in mostly stainless steel vessels with a dollop of my oldest oak barrels.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes

Enticing and elegant, the 2016 Ma Fille displays a bright salmon pink color in the glass. Its bright aromatics of strawberry, watermelon, and pink grapefruit meld with an electric acidity. The mid-palate highlights a core of cherry pits, salt-water taffy, and pomegranate accents. The Ma Fille finishes with zesty hints of passionfruit, cranberry, and rose water.
