Ayoub Vineyard

Ayoub Vineyard and careful search to find the best site possible to plant Pinot Noir, Mohamad “Mo” Ayoub found the land he dreamt about nestled in the Dundee Hills. Untouched to vines – Mo saw the perfect potential to plant Pinot Noir and create a sustainable, healthy and top producing vineyard. The volcanic jory soils, south-facing slopes and fertile land made it an easy decision to plant four prized acres of vines in 2001. The Dundee Hills appellation is highly respected and known for its bright and elegant wines. In 2004, Mo was able to unveil the potential of his land by producing a wine from the vines he meticulously planted and cared for. The results proved to be flourishing, providing bright fruit and unique complexity, creating an elegant Pinot Noir. Ayoub is committed to producing a limited amount of Pinot Noir of the highest quality. The current release, 2005 Ayoub Pinot Noir, will be available in November 2006.

  Ayoub Pinot Noir
The 2005 Ayoub Pinot Noir is rich with bright red and black fruits, complex earthy notes that the Dundee Hills are known for, and a uniqueness to the vineyard site that consistently provides subtle hints of exotic spices, dried mushroom and tobacco. This wine demonstrates a robust body, while possessing the texture of fine satin in the mouth, and has a long finish that really exites the palate. You can enjoy the wine now, although it has great potential to age in the bottle for 10+ years.
