Unsorted Pinot Noir 18
When I first got into wine some 40 plus years ago, the words good and affordable didn't usually arrive in the same sentence when it came to California wine. That was especially true with Pinot Noir priced for every-day enjoyment. Fast forward to today, and the opposite is undoubtedly true.
Unsorted Pinot Noir comes to us from the folks who make Atom Cabernet Sauvignon. Like the Atom Cab, this Pinot Noir is a stand-out in its class for typicity and price. The sleek, vibrant cherry, strawberry, and raspberry fruit balances with gorgeous notes of cinnamon, baking spice, briary earth, and a touch of vanilla. We'd love this with salmon, tuna, grilled white meats, and roasted chicken.
Tasting note from the winemaker:
"Our Pinot Noir provides notes of sage and spice and is driven by red fruit, primarily raspberry, cranberry, and wild strawberry. 2018 was a strong year, with warm temperatures throughout the summer and a very gradual decline in cooler conditions. With sourcing from across the state, we created what we believe is a delightful example of one of the world's most popular varietals."
