Exploding with aromas of raspberries, cherries, wild strawberries and a hint of vanilla, the mouthfeel is rich, with great texture and a supple finish.
Beautifully pure notes of macerated strawberry, raspberry, and red cherry are perfectly balanced by savory notes of baking spice, sage, and sous bois as this wine finishes with bright acidity and velvety tannins.
Cheese with slightly sweet, nutty flavors and smooth texture served with pork-based charcuterie.
Anchovies, herring, mackerel, mullet fish or grilled salmon with a mild butter sauce.
Lamb or pork chops with grilled vegetables.
Pasta with light tomato sauce made with wine, broth or a touch of cream.
A classic beef Bourguignon or lightly marinated beef tenderloin or filet mignon.
Story of the Wine
Our Pinot Noir grapes are grown near the Pacific Ocean along the Sonoma Coast. Fruit is harvested at night and immediately sorted at the winery. Following a short cold soak, the juice is fermented in stainless steel, open-top tanks. When fermentation is complete, the wine is drained from the tank and the skins are gently pressed. The resulting wine is aged in both neutral barrels and new barrels for 11 months.
