2019 Pinot Noir Pepperwood Ridge

2019 Pinot Noir Pepperwood Ridge

Our newest single-vineyard Pinot Noir! The 2019 Pepperwood Ridge Pinot Noir is a lush one. Notes of cherry, bay laurel, and dried tea leaves greet you on the nose. This wine leans savory, flowering herbs, oregano, and wild strawberry on the palate. The finish is bright and balanced, with round, firm tannins. This wine pairs perfectly with Coq au Vin, duck bao buns, or a warm summer evening. 

We’re thrilled to introduce the newest addition to our single-vineyard offerings. A beautiful wine with a lingering finish that invites a second glass.
