ONEHOPE California Pinot Noir 2011
Pinot Noir from California
Rob Mondavi Jr. hand-crafted this Pinot Noir from select vineyards throughout Napa, Sonoma, and the Central Coast. Our 2011 Pinot Noir showcases the delicacy of the grape by allowing an extended ripening period on the vine. This will ensure a mellow approach and an intriguing underlying intensity of strawberry and date flavors. Aged in American Oak rounds out the mouthfeel by introducing tannin structure and a spiced yet lush finish.
This wine deliciously pairs with a wide range of foods including: Fish, Chicken, Pork and Beef as well as Mushroom or Pesto Sauces and Brie.
Approximately 5 million to 7 million homeless pets enter animal shelters nationwide each year, leaving millions of dogs and cats waiting to find a loving home. This important issue is one of the main reasons why we are supporting the ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®), by donating half of our profits from each bottle to help animals in need across the country.

About Other California
California has nearly 100 American Viticulture Areas (AVAs) and accounts for almost 90% of wine production in the United States. In our section of Other California, we include wines from smaller AVAs as well as wines from the California AVA. Here are a few smaller AVAs you may see on the label:
Livermore Valley AVA, located right outside of San Francisco and home to wineries such as Wente.
Lodi County AVA, an AVA further east of San Francisco and known for its excellent, old-vine Zinfandels.
San Francisco Bay AVA, a sprawling AVA that covers Contra Costa, Santa Clara and Santa Cruz counties, to name a few.
Wine that holds only the California AVA is typically a wine that includes grapes from a number of different AVAs, which leads to the general labeling of the wine as California. This does not denote the quality of the wine, only the diversity of where the grapes originate.
It's not rare to see a wine's country of origin listed as "California." A country into itself in the wine world, California makes enough varieties and styles to match many European wine countries. It produces a diverse range of wines that span the quality spectrum.
The most famous of the California wine regions is Napa Valley, and these wines are certainly outstanding – but it's not as broad and diverse as its larger neighbor, Sonoma County. Down south, Santa Barbara's Santa Maria Valley is well-known for its Rhône blends, as well as cool-climate varieties like Pinot and Chardonnay. The Central Coast, the largest California AVA, has many different microclimates that lead to a wide range of wines with many sub-AVAs.

Alcohol By Volume Guide
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
