Product Description

Tasting notes

This wine is medium garnet in color and shows dark and red, brambly fruits and cola on the nose. The palate bursts for the with red and black fruits – essences of blackberry, pomegranate, red and black cherries. The rich and soft mouthfeel leads to a long lingering finish, with elegantly integrated tannins.

Balanced and complex, this wine is drinkable now, but should age nicely for another 10+ years

Food pairing notes

Showing delightful fruity tones it has some flexibility with regards to pairing. I think this wine right now, is tasting like an excellent Thanksgiving wine!

This is a small family-owned vineyard located in Sebastopol that has a nice variety of clones with great aspect and soil type to grow Pinot Noir.
