  • Pure Pleasure and explosive fruit! Our Pinot Noir’s aromatics and taste are dominated by ripe berry and black cherries. The flavors follow with raspberry and hints of strawberry. The texture is rich and elegant finishing long on the palate.

    Wine Profile
    Tasting Notes
    I find expressive and appealing aromas of strawberry, cola, cinnamon and hints of graham cracker on the nose. On the palate, the wine lunges onto the palate, conveying richness and a full-bodied texture. I find ripe red berry flavors balanced by light vanillin oak notes, transitioning into a bold finale of bright fruit.
    Vineyard Notes
    2013 was a wonderful wine-growing season in Napa Valley, a true classic. With the exception of a slight heat spike in June, the weather remained consistent throughout the growing season. Two brief mid-September rains had no impact on the grapes still in the field. All of our Chardonnay and Pinot Noir had already been harvested and sunny weather with breezes followed the rains, allowing for the Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Syrah that remained to dry out almost immediately. The cooler, sunny weather throughout October allowed the final grapes still on the vine to linger longer, developing more phenolic and flavor maturities with sugar levels remaining steady.
    Food Pairing Notes
    Thanksgiving Dinner! Traditional Turkey with all the trimmings, especially cranberry. Ham as well as duck and goose.
