Incredibly smooth and luscious Sonoma Pinot

    • Robust and silky-smooth red from a prime-time Pinot region - spilling over with flavors like rich cherries, juicy wild berries and a touch of toasty oak.
    • Daryl went to five different vineyards in Sonoma’s Russian River Valley to give your Pinot lush, mouth-filling layers of flavor - then aged it in French oak for satiny-smooth richness.
    • Your winemaker made $800 bottles of wine in Australia, but now he’s making his absolute dream wines - thanks to you! Treat yourself by scooping up a bottle (or two) of this perfectly-aged Pinot.
    • You’re funding an award-winning wine! This red just picked up a Silver at the prestigious San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. And it couldn’t have happened without your support!

Aging advice
I love this wine as a young Pinot, but it will age well for 5-8 years.

Serving advice
I think it's great to serve as is. On hot days drinking outside, I like to chill this wine slightly.

Local food match
Salmon, pork or comfort food.
