The Vintage

A classic vintage for the Napa Valley, the 2012 growing season was characterized by warm days and cool nights. In our vineyards in the Oak Knoll District, a dry and warm spring provided the vines with a strong start and the summer was generally mild with most days getting up into the 80’s and many nights as low as the 40’s. The early start to the season was tempered by a slightly cooler than average autumn resulting in typical harvest dates for all varieties–and grapes and wines of exceptional quality.

The Wine

Our Pinot Noir exudes lovely aromas of violet, plums and cherries with intriguing scents of forest floor and oak. Bright and juicy on the palate, with pronounced red-berry and pomegranate fruit flavors accented by dark spice tones. It is enriched on the finish by subtle hints of black peppercorns and cinnamon.

Food Affinities

The ultimate food pairing wine, Pinot Noir shines with leaner meats, poultry and sausage. The wine is uplifted with earthy flavors like truffles and mushrooms. Compliment with coriander, rosemary, thyme, tarragon, cinnamon or allspice.
