2021 Whole Cluster Pinot Noir

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: Characterized by the winemaking process that focuses on pure fruit expression, the wine opens with aromas and flavors of raspberry and strawberry preserves accented by savory cardamom spice and earth.

On the Palate: Indicative of the warm and even growing season, the palate is lush and full-bodied giving way to a smooth, round sip to enjoy a glass or two with ease.

Food Pairing: Our most versatile Pinot Noir for food pairing, this wine lends itself well to sweet and tangy BBQ dishes, sushi, spicy Asian and Indian dishes, wood-fired flatbreads, gourmet burgers and salmon. Try serving slightly chilled on a warm summer evening.

Peak drinkability: 2022 - 2026

"Wines made with consideration for the environment, employees and community simply taste better."

Jim Bernau, Founder/Winegrower

Whole Cluster Pinot Noir:

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.

The stylistic vision of this wine captures pure Pinot Noir fruit with beautiful depth and structure through whole cluster fermentation and carbonic maceration. The wine is balanced, refreshing and versatile for countless food pairings.
