Winemaker Notes

The J Vineyards Pinot Noir has aromatic notes of exotic spice, cherry preserves, and black tea. The palate is plush, jammy and ripe with flavors of spicy black pepper, cola, and plum.

Enjoy this wine with roasted leg of lamb with a balsamic-fig reduction or cranberry-glazed roast turkey breast with creamy mushroom risotto.

WW 89
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
COMMENTARY: Finding top-class Pinot Noirs under $30 is becoming quite difficult. Many of the wines in the marketplace are either combined with other grape varieties—Petite Sirah, Syrah, Zinfandel, or other—or they have a bit too much residual sugar. The 2016 J Vineyards is an exception and a wine that I can enjoy with a meal. TASTING NOTES: This wine is quite fruit, with loads of red and blueberries. On the palate, its length and freshness make it a nice choice with grilled salmon with a light teriyaki glace. (Tasted: April 9, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

Internationally recognized for gorgeous, pure fruit combined with great elegance, California Pinot noir thrives among the state’s cooler, coastal zones. Characterized by eclectic flavors and aromas of strawberry, black cherry, plum and potpourri with notes of forest floor, mushroom or black tea, the best California Pinot noir boast a supple texture and good acidity, giving them the ability to improve with age.

Credited with the beginning of Pinot noir’s glory in California, two growers, Joe Rochioli and Joseph Swan in the late 1960s independently planted Pinot noir vineyards in the Russian River Valley of Sonoma County. Today Sonoma County remains the leading producer of Pinot noir in the state, and Pinot noir is the leading red grape in the county, achieving its highest potential, in the Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast.

Other coastal appellations where Pinot noir flourishes include Carneros, Anderson Valley and most of the Central Coast.
