    Winemaker Notes

    Aromas of raspberry, dark plum, and fresh oregano frame this Cabernet's soft fruit with a light herbaceousness. Showing great varietal character on the palate, flavors of blackberry and red currant are closely followed by toasty French oak and a nuance of molasses on the mid-palate, adding weight and depth. Finishing with lingering crushed red berry and savory notes, the light tannins on the back end open up a variety of food pairing options. All together, the rich mouthfeel and fine structure creates balance in this wine that connoisseurs and novices alike will enjoy.

    Serve a pot roast with stewed winter vegetables with this wine, or try a wild mushroom pizza with thyme and goat cheese to pair with the full and varied flavors in our Smoking Loon Cabernet Sauvignon.

    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.
