Winemaker's Notes

We're really excited about our Pinot Noir. We're convinced this will be a crowd-pleaser, with enough complexity to please the Pinotphile while having a healthy dose of bright and soft red berry fruit. Each region of California's Central Coast contributes a unique flavor component to the final blend.

Grapes from Santa Lucia Highlands provide much of the backbone and tannic structure — showcasing dark, brooding and spicy flavors. San Benito County Pinot Noir grapes give some additional weight and complexity to the wine, exhibiting classic Burgundian forest floor and truffle undertones Pinot Noir grapes from Vina del Rey unveil lighter, more delicate flavors of strawberry and other red berry fruits. Finally, a dash of Malbec leaves the wine with generous mid-palate sweetness and juicy red berry fruit character.

After primary fermentation, Twin Fin Pinot Noir was aged in new — two year old French (80%) and American (20%) oak for 10 months. This gives the wine added complexity, while protecting the inherent fruit flavors of the blend.

This is an easy wine to enjoy — matching beautifully with everything from swordfish to a slab of baby back ribs. The bright fruit flavors and delicate tannins make Twin Fish California Pinot Noir a flexible companion for your next cookout.
