ABOUT THE WINE

Since its premier vintage of Pinot Noir in 2001, Duckhorn Wine Company’s Migration has earned acclaim for a refined and compelling style of winemaking that seamlessly balances vibrancy and finesse.

From vineyard design to clonal selection, this tremendous property has been meticulously developed and farmed with the potential to make exceptional vineyard designate wines.

This one-of-a-kind auction lot is created from a selection of the best blocks and barrels from this exemplary site, ensuring beautifully complex, terroir-driven wine.
