Winemaker Notes

The 2016 Aquinas Pinot Noir offers robust aromas of raspberry, blackberry, black currant and clove spice notes. The wine’s elegant and rich mouthfeel is loaded with ripe, juicy fruit flavors and nuances of black tea and soy notes adding complexity. The wine has well-integrated tannins from its 10 months in 100% French Oak and is balanced by good acidity leaving a lingering, flavorful finish.

Blend: 95% Pinot Noir, 5% Petite Sirah

Critical Acclaim

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast

This wine is full of unmistakable varietal character, bursting with black-cherry and pine-forest aromas, filling the palate with a ripe-tart tension between black and red fruits, and staying nimble and balanced in terms of texture.

Aquinas, California
Aquinaswines are named for St. Thomas Aquinas, the seminal 13th century Italian priest, theologian and philosopher who dedicated his life to reconciling reason and faith. Just as he challenged the assumptions of his world, we are challenging the assumptions within ours.

Aquinas wines are born from our belief that sophisticated, luxurious wines from pre-eminent appellations should be within the reach of all. We meticulously scour Napa Valley, leveraging generations of deep relationships to find the perfect fruit. Then, we pull upon decades of award-winning winemaking—itself an inherent blend of science and mysticism—to create wines that transcend their temporal origins.

Despite their accessibility, or perhaps because of it, Aquinas wines have been well-received by critics across the country. A string of gold and silver medals has served to further underscore the faith we hold in our founding convictions.

Reaching up California's coastline and into its valleys north of San Francisco, the North Coast AVA includes six counties: Marin, Solano, Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino and Lake. While Napa and Sonoma enjoy most of the glory, the rest produce no shortage of quality wines in an intriguing and diverse range of styles.

Climbing up the state's rugged coastline, the chilly Marin County, just above the City and most of Sonoma County, as well as Mendocino County on the far north end of the North Coast successfully grow cool-climate varieties like Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and in some spots, Riesling. Inland Lake County, on the other hand, is considerably warmer, and Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc produce some impressive wines with affordable price tags.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
