About the wine

Classic and elegant Sonoma Pinot... perfection!
  • 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.

Best before
I love pinot best when its young and fresh but this wine will also be great in 5 years.

Serving advice
If is a hot warm day I like to chill my pinot slightly.

Food match
Pork and salmon (not together) for sure are classic but this wine will pair with almost everything and is well balanced and delicious enough to enjoy on its own

Meet the winemaker - Daryl Groom

  • Meet Daryl... a 35-year veteran of the wine biz, credited eight-times as Winemaker of the Year, named by Food & Wine Magazine as one of 11 visionaries to change the world of wine... and oh yes, he served up his wines at the Oscars and Emmys two years in a row! Safe to say, the man's accomplished.
  • Working as the senior white and red winemaker at Penfolds, his 1986 Penfolds Grange was arguably one of the top 3 Granges ever made - 98 points from Spectator and Robert Parker. And now that he works for you, he loves showing off wines from Australia and his California home – Sonoma and Russian River Valley. 
  • Thanks to your funding, Daryl can focus on doing what he loves – making great wine and sharing great wine. And he selects the best barrels he needs and farms to the best quality. "You are a gift from God to a winemaker," he says. "I knew there were Angels in heaven!"

    –– "Groom made Penfolds' flagship red, Grange Hermitage, which has become Australia's most collectible wine." --Wine Spectator, on the $500+ Grange
    –– "Groom is my choice for Winemaker of the Year " -- LA Times, Dan Berger
    –– "Daryl Groom. The human Tornado. " -- Bill Rice, Chicago Tribune
