Like the premium Pinot Noirs around the world, Pietro Family Cellars Pinot Noir is grown in a cooler climate region. The 2018 vintage grapes came from the Senemar Ranch Vineyard in Napa Valley, by the famous Carneros District. Located near the San Francisco Bay, at approximately 800 ft. elevation, it welcomes the fog from early evening to late morning through-out the summer. The fog maintains cool evenings and temperate days, thus preserving great acidity and structure in the wine.
Pinot Noir is a very versatile wine. it’s earthy vs sweet flavor profile makes it an ideal food wine that has a wide range of pairing from red and white meat, poultry (Thanksgiving turkey is a classic), fish and vegetarian dishes such as grilled Portobello mushrooms. It is ideal with duck and other game birds. Or sip with a plate of cheese and crackers.
: The Pinot Noir was aged in15% new and 85% once used French oak barrels for 33 months. This allowed for full integration of the oak with the fruit flavors. O’Connell Family Wines Is known for its extended aging program, resulting in beautifully integrated and elegant wines.
Very drinkable now but will age for another 20+ years.
