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.
The 2006 Dierberg Pinot Noir has proven to be somewhat atypical
and is a departure from our big, burly house style. The wine exhibits
the "sauvage" sage-like note that has come to define the wines from
our vineyard, but envelops it in a more elegant frame. It is a sublime
and classy wine, with delicate aromas of tea leaf, raspberry and forest
floor and a sneaky structural component that keeps it firm and
age worthy. The wine is perhaps more Audrey Hepburn than Brigitte
Bardot in style. Enjoy this lithe and beautiful wine now with simply
flavored food, or age for as many as 10 years to enhance the sage
and forest floor notes that characterize the vintage.
"Medium ruby color; deep, spicy, red cherry aromas with some lavender notes; ripe, rich deep cherry and spice flavors; herbal, lavender notes, complex and interesting; good structure and balance, long finish. Subtle, spice and herbal notes make this a very interesting Pinot to drink. Nice balance makes it a good player on the table as well."
"Sweet, optimally ripened, cherry-like fruit is accented with deft touches of milk chocolate, flowers and sweet spice throughout the considerable length of this concentrated and keenly focused young Pinot, and, if very well-balanced and so showy as to beg early drinking, this fleshy wine is built with a fine spine of silky tannins that bodes quite well for age. Drink it now if you must with the likes of a rare rack of lamb, but we are planning to set a few bottles aside for three or four years and suggest that you do the same thing."
"Vivid red. Suave, spicy aromas of raspberry, candied cherry and smoky minerals, with a touch of white pepper adding complexity. Smooth in texture, with deep red berry preserve flavors framed by velvety tannins. Gains weight with air and finishes with deeper dark fruit qualities and lingering spiciness. Highly alluring and emphatically New World in style; this will work well with spicy or smoky foods."

Pinot Noir(PEE-noh nwahr)
Pinot Noir is a finicky grape. It only grows in
the right climate, with the right soils and the right care. Perhaps because
it is so difficult is why it is so loved. Pinot Noir hails from Burgundy, a region known for crafting the most collectible and sought-after wines from this varietal.
Not only does Pinot reign in Burgundy, it is also...Read More About Pinot Noir
