    Winemaker Notes

    The 2011 Pinot Noir from 24 Knots offers a bouquet of bright strawberries and black cherries with notes of toast and earth balanced by a long, well-structured finish.

    This Pinot pairs well with grilled salmon, roast duck, pork tenderloin, filet mignon, soft-ripened cheeses.

    24 Knots, Central Coast, California
    Named for the chilled marine winds that blow off California’s Monterey Bay, 24 Knots is an unusually expressive and exquisitely balanced Pinot Noir. The Monterey Bay’s unique geography combines ample sunshine offered by the region’s low latitude with protective fog and breezes that flow down the Salinas Valley every summer afternoon. These breezes slow the ripening process, thus affording extended hang times and full flavor maturation before harvest. The result is a remarkable wine, expressive in its aromatics, balanced in structure and precise in varietal character.

    Red Wine

    A major force on the global playing field, California is the world’s fourth largest wine-producing region on the planet and the majority of land under vine here is devoted to red varieties—they cover nearly double the vineyard acreage compared to whites.

    While the state’s incredibly diverse terrain and microclimates allow for countless red wine styles, the one factor unifying all California red wine is the abundance of sunshine and a long, consistent growing season, which leads to well-developed and fully ripened fruit.

    The most famous region today, of course, is the acclaimed Napa Valley, where Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Bordeaux Blends garner global attention and in some cases, cult status.

    Sonoma County, nestled between Napa Valley and the Pacific Ocean, claims great variability in geography and microclimates with vineyards climbing up mountains, reaching far into valleys and stretching along some the state’s most dramatic coastlines. Here world-class Pinot Noir is possible from Sonoma’s cooler sites while Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon do well in its warmer locations.

    The Central Coast, Lodi and the Sierra Foothills also excel in the production of Zinfandel, and remain active new frontiers for Rhône and Spanish varieties.

    Mendocino in California’s cool North Coast region is a fantastic source of Pinot noir.

    Winemaking in California dates back to the 18th century when Spanish missionaries planted the first wine grapes. But the industry experienced its first boom with the Gold Rush in the last half of the 19th century when miners brought vines to the Sierra Foothills.
