Tasting Notes

Bright ruby color with floral and raspberry aromas. Darker fruit flavors on the palate alongside fine tannins. Aged in both old and new oak barrels for a weightier texture that is still balanced. A great match for pulled pork or turkey with cranberry sauce.

Staff Pick Notes

Bench from Brack Mountain

Out of Sonoma County comes a production of boutique wines from Brack Mountain Winery. This Pinot Noir is sourced primarily from the Sangiocomo Amaral Ranch Vineyard, whose deep valley floors transition into steep, rocky soils. This benchland soil helps to produce wines with sultry dark fruit flavors and lean, luscious structure comparable to wines of Burgundy. Aromas of strawberry, raspberry, fig and delicate florals entice the nose while blackberry, cranberry and pomegranate ease onto the palate. This Pinot Noir boasts vibrant acidity and fine tannins backed by a well-rounded, muscular texture and weight, making it great for roasted meats and rich sauces. Much like a well-built bench, this wine has a strong foundation, provides nice balance and is a nice reprieve to simply enjoy.
