Vaughn Duffy Wines
Matt Duffy was working at Bacchus & Venus in Sausalito, selling wines. Along with his wife, Sara Vaughn, they fell in love with Pinot Noir. Duffy worked a harvest at Siduri and then began winemaking at Vinify, a custom crush winery. In 2009, the couple bought one ton of Pinot Noir grapes and made their first wine under the Vaughn Duffy Wines label. The 2009 Suacci Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir and 2010 Sonoma County Rose were released in 2011.
The wines are available through a mailing list.
Articles About Vaughn Duffy Wines
2011 Vaughn Duffy Suacci Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
13.1% alc., 29 cases, $40. Very meager yields in 2011. Dijon clones. · Moderately light reddish-purple color in the glass. Aromas of dark red berries, spice and smoky oak. Lean and acid-driven, with flavors of cranberries and unripe strawberries, lacking enough concentration to please and finishing very short. Decent. Reviewed April 13, 2013 ARTICLE »
