Winemaker's Notes:

The famed Bien Nacido Vineyard in Santa Barbara provides grapes for this classically-made Pinot Noir. A distinctive ripe cherry and oak-spice nose precedes ripe cherry and black pepper-spice flavors with a hint of vanilla from barrel aging in French oak. Herb-roasted poultry, grilled salmon or tuna, roast pork and game dishes are perfect matches with this lovely 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.
