Pinot Noir time!!

Fall weather screams Pinot Noir time!!
Here are just a few suggestions from our amazing selection

2021 Lucia by Pisoni Pinot Noir Estate Cuvee....$55.99
This bottling is both lush and bright at once, starting with aromas of crisp cherry compote, fresh raspberry, mace and elegant French-toast spices. Sprightly energy dances across the palate, where juicy dark-red-fruit flavors are lifted by lavender, carnation and rose petal.
Rated 95/100 The Wine Enthusiast

2016 La Crema Pinot Noir Fog Veil...our price.....$39.99
Release price...$52.99

The grapes were sourced from our vineyards situated in the Santa Rosa Plain neighborhood of the Russian River Valley AVA. This neighborhood is slightly warmer than the westerly areas of the Russian River Valley. Daily fog moderates the summer heat and shallow Huichica loam soils encourage concentrated Pinot clusters on the vine. Primary clones blended for this vintage include: 115, 667, 777, Flowers, and Pommard." --winery notesPale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2016 Pinot Noir Fog Veil has very pretty notes of cranberries, Bing cherries and pomegranate with touches of black pepper, lavender and cinnamon stick. Medium to full-bodied and offering a firm, plush frame and oodles of freshness, it gives tons of seductive yet elegantly styled fruit in the mouth, with a long mineral-laced finish.

2021 Peay PInot Noir Pomarium West Sonoma Coast...$81.99
The 2021 Pinot Noir Pomarium. is packed with notes of black cherry liqueur and kirsch, pure ripe fruit, a touch of sage, and sweet earth. It’s more grounded and muscular, with ripe, broad tannins, and has great depth as well as a grounded nature, with good fruit throughout.

2018 Pont Neuf Russian River Pinot Noir L'Origine...$99.99
Only 50 cases produced - yes, only 2 barrels

Grand Cru Quality - Bonne Mares from California!
Luxurious and powerful, L’Origine has impressive bearing, texture and presence in the glass. The wine is bottled un-fined and unfiltered, using natural fermentations. 100% French Oak from the Tronçais Forest is employed, air-dried 4 years to achieve the ultimate in finesse. Sourced from a single French clone of Pinot Noir, the wine mirrors our experience in Chambolle-Musigny where Douglas vinified his first vintage. We named it L’Origine, The Origin: the point or place where something begins, arises, or is derived. Tasting notes are consistently impressive: The flavors tell the story of an Autumn forager collecting wild mulberry, blueberry, and blackberry. There is something sauvage about the fruit quality, where the sweet dimension of fruit is heightened by black tea, porcini mushroom, and sage. The spice component is compelling, and exotic, with star anise, cardamon and truffle. For all its bold flavors, the framework is definitively grand cru. The 2018 L’Origine leans toward Chambolle Bonnes Mares in its combination of power and elegance. The superlative texture and brace of fine tannins is evidence that this wine will age for 20 years or more. Winemaker: Douglas Danielak Vineyard: Martinelli Family, Frey Road Appellation: Russian River 100% French cooperage, 4-year air dried, aged in barrel 9 -12 months Winemaking: Traditional Burgundian, Un-fined and unfiltered
