David Akiyoshi California Red 2017

Smooth, elegant and absolutely DREAMY California Pinot

    • 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!

Aging advice
“To infinity and beyond” – Buzz Lightyear (or, somewhere in-between...)

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

Local food match
I’m thinkin’ a herb-crusted lamb shank, lightly grilled and served with seasonal roasted vegetables drizzled with a Sazerac/Peychaud’s bitters sauce…Nice!
