About the wine

You're not dreaming - this Pinot's just rich, ripe and delicious beyond belief!
  • Your luscious, richly textured, oh-so-smooth red is back! And it's flowing with soft, juicy fruit flavors like sun-ripened cherries and earthy spices... just the sort of scrumptious sipper you'd expect from a 30-year wine expert!
  • A bottle with this much finesse should sell for double... but when you fund winemakers directly, it's a whole 'nother story! And David gave your Pinot the works...
  • "This is a classic Pinot that doesn't need other varietals blended into it for intensity," he says. "It's got a silky textural feel with a nice, long finish." Better listen to your winemaker!

Best before
"To infinity and beyond" - Buzz Lightyear or somewhere in-between.

Serving advice
I think it is beautiful straight out of the gate.

Food match
I'm thinking an herb-crusted lamb shank, lightly grilled and served with seasonal roasted vegetables drizzled with a Sazerac/Peychaud's bitters sauce...Nice!
