Dark and brooding as a “Cab lover’s Pinot” should be. Intense plum, close savory herb and a faint but alluring musky perfume on the nose. On the palate, rich and mouth-coating, full of ripe, dark fruit, allspice and black pepper.

The perfect partner for a steak, although it also pairs nicely with lighter fare like brie or gruyère.

A notoriously challenging variety, Pinot Noir prefers the foggy, wind-swept slopes of the Carneros region, in southern Napa Valley. The climate here helps to retain the aromatic complexity and bright acidity of the grape as flavor development advances. The renowned Rancho Carneros Vineyard is home to 45 year-old, head-trained, dry-farmed vines that bring depth and complexity to the blend. The vineyard is also home to a small, more-southern section of vines planted in 2005 which contribute weight, richness and darker fruit tones. This year’s blend is a combination of the two sections.
