About the wine

When 2 famous winemakers' forces combine...
  • Daryl made you a special Pinot with a secret stash of prized fruit from Susie Selby – a rockstar winemaker in Sonoma County (and proprietress of Selby Winery in Healdsburg, CA). 
  • Your 'Susie's Block' Pinot is rich and vibrant, full of bright fruit flavor and a smooth barrel-aged finish Daryl describes (with a loving sigh) as "distinctly delightful." 
  • Russian River is a world-class growing region for Pinot – and Daryl harvest some of the best grapes thanks with a little help from his friends. Less than 1,000 cases exist!

Best before
I love this wine as a young pinot but it will age well for 5-8 years.

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

Food match
Salmon, pork or comfort food

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
