One of my favorite Pinot Noirs! The layers of deep flavor expand as the wine opens in the glass focused, then chewy then silky and fine. The firm back end has great acid and tannin definition that absorbs the wine's natural concentration, holds the power in-check and leaves the palate refreshed and mouthwatering.
Patz & Hall Winery
I like the Pinot from their Archer Family Vineyard or their Five Barrel. Our Pinot Noir program captures the vibrant diversity of this exceptional varietal. In the winery, we craft wines that balance the depth, power and purity of Pinot Noir with elegance, structure and finesse
The Donum Estate Winery
The Donum estate Pinot Noir has been described as a beautifully made wine, I could not agree more! Donum means 'gift of the land.' We produce only single-vineyard, estate wines from vineyards in Carneros, Russian River Valley and Anderson Valley.
Belle Glos Winery
Love their Pinot wines! Belle Glos showcases distinctive Pinot Noirs produced from California's most noteworthy coastal wine-growing regions. While each vineyard location lies near the Pacific Ocean, the climate differences are significant, varying with the amount of fog, wind, sunlight, and soil type at each site. Each Vineyard Designate is crafted to distill the purest essence of the locale into elegant expressions of California Pinot Noir.
If you have not tried their Pinot, you are missing out! Wrath produces small quantities of extremely high quality Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Syrah, and Sauvignon Blanc from its estate vineyard in Monterey and a few respected growers in the Santa Lucia Highlands.
Really nice wine! Freeman Vineyard & Winery is the fruition of a 20-year dream shared by Ken and Akiko Freeman to craft elegant cool climate California Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in a sophisticated, Burgundian style.
