We have added the following products to your shopping cart from a previous visit:
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
Our goal is to allow the wine to develop its own depth and distinctive characteristics. Three days "cold soaked", fermented at moderate temperatures and twelve months of aging in French oak barrels develops a rounder, creamier texture in the wine. The 2008 Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir has a pretty reddish purple hue and rich, fruit-driven aromas of blackberry pie, sweet earth and cloves. The palate is bursting with red fruit and pleasant, soft tannins. Well-integrated flavors of blackberry, strawberry and vanilla lead to a nicely textured, full finish.
FOOD & WINE PAIRING Try this Pinot Noir paired with poached salmon in cream sauce, pork with mushrooms or roasted Cornish game hen.
