    Winemaker Notes

    This medium- to full-bodied wine has bright cherry aromas with a hint of spice, pencil shavings and slight earthiness from our "terroir". Fruit flavors and aromas of red cherry, black cherry and red currant are nicely balanced with clove, vanilla and tobacco components from toasted oak. The finish is long and rich with notes of brown sugar and cinnamon. Try this wine with grilled salmon, lamb, pork or veal.

    Alcohol: 13.9% by volume

    Edna Valley Vineyard, , California
    Edna Valley Vineyard
    Located just four miles from the Pacific Ocean near San Luis Obispo, Edna Valley Vineyard benefits from the coolest and longest growing season in California. The valley’s east-west orientation funnels afternoon sea breezes so the grapes slowly ripen on the vine. This prolonged hangtime allows the grapes to develop generous flavors and outstanding balance. Predominantly sandstone and shale-derived soils contribute mineral nuances to the lush, layered fruit of Edna Valley Vineyard Chardonnay.

    This pioneering winery is the result of a partnership between Chalone Wine Group and Paragon Vineyard, and defines the Central Coast appellation for which it is named. Founded in 1980 as the Edna Valley appellation's first producer of estate-grown Chardonnay, Edna Valley Vineyard also quickly established the region’s Pinot Noir credentials. While relying on artisan winemaking, Edna Valley Vineyard continues to innovate in the new millennium, introducing one of the region’s first Syrahs and—with the addition of the latest clones and trellis systems in the vineyard and a modernized, state-of-the-art winery—adding new luster to its popular mainstays.

    Edna Valley Vineyard lies at the heart of the Edna Valley American Viticulture Area, established in 1982. The winery's Jack Niven Hospitality Center enables visitors to sample delicious wines amid this beautiful landscape.

    Sonoma Coast

    View all wine

    A vast appellation covering Sonoma County’s Pacific coastline, the Sonoma Coast AVA runs from the San Pablo Bay to the Mendocino County border. The region can actually be divided into two sections—the “true” Sonoma Coast, marked by high rainfall, marine soils, cool temperatures, and saline ocean breezes, from which one can actually see the ocean—and the warmer, drier vineyards further inland, creating a diversity of wine styles. Contained within the appellation is the much smaller and more focused Fort Ross-Seaview AVA.

    Sonoma Coast is highly regarded for elegant Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and, increasingly, cool-climate Syrah, with high acidity, moderate alcohol, firm tannin, and fruit that is rarely overripe. One of the most favorable sites within the region is the Petaluma Gap, where a break in the coastal mountain range allows Pacific winds and fog to funnel through and cool the vineyards.

    Pinot Noir

    View all wine

    One of the most difficult yet rewarding grapes to grow, Pinot Noir is commonly referred to by winemakers as the “heartbreak grape.” However, the greatest red wines of Burgundy prove that it is unquestionably worth the effort. More reflective than most varieties of the land on which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate, requires low yields to achieve high quality, and demands care in the vineyard and lots of attention in the winery. It is an important component of Champagne and the only variety permitted in red Burgundy. Pinot Noir enjoys immense popularity internationally, most notably in Oregon, California, and New Zealand.

    In the Glass

    Pinot Noir Is all about red fruit—strawberry, raspberry, and cherry. It is relatively pale in color with soft tannins and lively acidity. It ranges in body from very light to the heavier side of medium, typically landing somewhere in the middle—giving it extensive possibilities for food pairing. With age (of which the best examples can handle an astounding amount), it can develop hauntingly beautiful characteristics of fresh earth, autumn leaves, and truffles.

    Perfect Pairings

    Pinot’s healthy acidity cuts through the oiliness of pink-fleshed fish like salmon, ocean trout, and tuna. Its mild mannered tannins don’t fight with spicy food, and give it enough structure to pair with all sorts of poultry—chicken, quail, and especially duck. As the namesake wine of Boeuf Bourguignon, it can even match with heavier fare. Pinot Noir is also very vegetarian-friendly—most notably with any dish that features mushrooms.

    Sommelier Secret

    Pinot Noir is dangerously drinkable, highly addictive, and has a bad habit of emptying the wallet. Look for affordable but still delicious examples from Germany (as Spätburgunder), Italy (as Pinot Nero), Chile, New Zealand, and France’s Loire Valley and Alsace regions.
