    Winemaker Notes

    Carefully selected from hillside vineyards nestled among the Apennine foothills of the Otrepò Pavese region of Lombardy, Kris Pinot Noir offers a uniquely northern Italian take on this classic varietal. These highly reputed vineyards offer many different microclimates of varying exposures and elevations, each of which contributes a highly distinctive component to the final blend. This is a great value wine that will appeal to both Pinot Noir fans and Italian wine lovers alike.

    Deep ruby-red in color with purple hues, Kris Pinot Noir shows enticing aromas of ripe blackberries and red forest fruits, followed by firm, yet fine-grained tannins on the palate. It pairs exceptionally well with speck (the local thick-sliced, cured ham) and Taleggio cheese, and more casual fare such as pasta, pizza or smoked sausages.

    Kris wines are a joint effort of winemaker Franz Haas and Winebow. Winebow founder and CEO Leonardo LoCascio first met Franz Haas on a visit to Italy in the late 1990s. Immediately impressed with Haas' mastery of winemaking analytics and his painstaking attention to detail in all aspects of vineyard management and winemaking, Winebow began importing Haas wines into the U.S.

    Recognizing Haas' winemaking talent and sensing a tremendous market opportunity for well-crafted, reasonably priced "lifestyle wines" in the U.S. market, LoCascio approached Haas about developing top-notch Pinot Grigio and Merlot to be sold in the U.S. under a new label, Kris. Haas agreed, and in his characteristically meticulous fashion, set about laying the groundwork for this new enterprise.

    In developing Kris, Haas examined pre-existing vineyards, and carefully explored new sites with soils and locations comparable to his own, in order to plant new vines. The resulting wines, Kris Pinot Grigio and Heart Merlot, have exceeded expectation in both quality and value.

    Napa Valley

    Cabernet Sauvignon

    View all wine

    The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
