Years ago, Founder Jim Bernau began experimenting with Pinot Noir by gently dropping hand-picked whole clusters in a chilled stainless fermenter, pushing all the oxygen out with CO2 and sealing the vessel tight. What happened next was magical — the berries started to swell and turn pink. When they burst, they released the most aromatic, fermenting Pinot Noir.
On the Nose: Vibrant pink in color, the wine opens with fruit-forward aromas of ruby red grapefruit, guava and orange.
On the Palate: A juicy, lush palate offering flavors of strawberries and raspberries accented by notes of spring including florals and fresh herbs. A crisp and clean finish refreshes the palate and invites another sip.
Food Pairing: Perfect for pairing with appetizers like antipasto and charcuterie platters or at the start of the meal with fresh, seasonal salads, can also be enjoyed with light entrees like Dungeness cake cakes, shrimp Pad Thai and roasted poultry.
