3 Months New French Oak
90% Pinot Noir, 10% Petite Sirah
The Kautz Family grows these Pinot Noir grapes in their Thornton Ranch property in the Jahant sub-AVA, closest Lodi AVA to the California Delta, a vast waterway that directly connects to the Pacific Ocean. These vineyards benefit the greatest from the daily ocean breezes, making it one of the coolest areas in Lodi.
Our Pinot Noir gives you seductive aromas of luscious black cherries mixed with cloves, spice and a touch of vanilla. These are followed by a well-rounded and supple cherry and plum flavor with a bit of earthiness. Soft tannins and smoky black tea-tobacco notes finish this full-flavored wine deliciously.
Food Pairing Notes
Wild mushroom bruschetta is a great appetizer with this wine or serve with plank salmon, roasted chicken, game birds such as duck or pheasant, pork roasts or lamb chops. Vegan friendly.
