PINOT NOIR - CALIFORNIA
Pinot Noir has a gentle spirit. Always subtle, never too brash or flamboyant, always ready to satisfy a thirsty wine drinker when bigger, bolder wines just won’t do. It certainly shows its versatility in terms of food pairing, where its pliability and ability to pair with a wide variety of cuisine makes it every sommelier’s best friend. Dry Farm Pinot Noir showcases the elements that make Pinot Noir so special in every glass of this elegant, medium bodied, sophisticated red wine.

Dry Farm Pinot Noir focuses on strawberry and raspberry fruit, an earthy mid-palate, and a long, mineral-laden finish that evokes wind-swept ridges, virgin Douglas fir forests and the same self-confident yet humble attitude found among the vignerons in its place of origin.

PINOT NOIR YOU READY?
You get the feeling talking to California winemakers that the state’s ability to consistently produce world-class Pinot Noir is like a closely guarded secret – with plenty of sunshine, a warm-yet-dry growing season and cool nighttime temperatures that modulate sugar accumulation, it’s almost as if the wines make themselves.
The local wine industry as a whole is a tightly knit community, eager to share their tips and tricks and invested in each other’s ability to succeed in the demanding, competitive wine market to raise the profile of the state’s Pinot Noirs as a whole. California Pinot Noir production as a whole is somewhat limited, but their reputation surpasses their volume, and the Golden State is now solidly in the conversation of where in the world the best Pinots are grown.
