Wine Maker Notes
The moderate growing climate of California’s Central Coast provides optimal growing conditions to produce complex, elegantly structured Pinot Noir. This wine has a lovely garnet hue and heady aromas of black cherries and ripe strawberries. The wine opens up to a flavor of red raspberry and a hint of spice with a creamy finish. We harvest our Pinot Noir grapes at their peak and cold soak them for a couple of days. The juice undergoes a cool fermentation to preserve the bright cherry fruit. American and French oak barrels are used to age the wine for about nine months.
This wine pairs well with lamb kabobs, smoked sausage, or your favorite mushroom risotto.
