Sourced exclusively from 15 acres of Pinot Noir from the first plantings at the Estate Vineyard, Founder Jim Bernau planted these vines using a Christmas tree planter pulled behind his 33-horsepower tractor.
On the Nose: Crimson hue illuminates from the glass.
On the Palate: Cranberry, raspberries and boysenberry fruits are blended with other perfumes of anise and other baking spices. Seductive satin tannins add a beautiful texture mixed in with some red tea, earth and cherry pie that provide grip and warmth.
Food Pairings: Roasted turkey with all the fixings, stuffing, mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce. Venison with caramelized carrots, mushroom ragù over polenta with shaved white truffle.
