Winemaker's Notes:

Pinot Noir is becoming a very popular wine with food and rightly so. Bing cherry and raspberry aromas with a hint of mint lead to flavors of ripe cherries and roasted tomatoes along with a hint of oak-spice from barrel aging in French oak. Tomato-based pastas, roast chicken, grilled salmon or tuna and grilled or roasted meats are all friendly dishes to this flavorful wine.
My Notes:

About Fetzer:

Fetzer Vineyards, America's sixth largest premium wine producer, has been producing high quality varietal wines since 1968 in beautiful Mendocino County. In 1958, lumber merchant Barney Fetzer bought a ramshackle ranch in Redwood Valley as a home for his wife and a soon-to-be family of eleven children. Here, in the rugged hills of Mendocino, they toiled in their vineyards for a decade and turned their dream into reality with their first vintage in 1968. The family sold the business in 1992 to Brown-Forman Corporation.
