2015 Pinot Noir
3 Months New French Oak
83% Pinot Noir, 11% Syrah, 6% Petite Syrah
The Kautz Family grows these Pinot Noir grapes in their Micke Grove vineyard that was planted in 2006 in the Mokelumne River sub-appellation of the Lodi AVA. This historical center of the Lodi wine growing region is noted for its fine sandy and well drained soils.
This inaugural release of 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 a smoky and black tea-tobacco note finishes this full flavored wine deliciously.
Food Pairing Notes
Our Pinot Noir is a perfect wine to serve with dishes pork roast, duck breasts, marinated skirt steaks, a fall glazed ham, lentil curry, mushroom bruschetta or a beautiful grilled salmon steak.
