CALIFORNIA PINOT NOIR
Despite being a relatively recent arrival, Pinot Noir has acclimated itself exceptionally well to the mild weather and virgin soils of Coastal California. It’s almost as if the grape has taken on the same laid-back, mellow personality of the state’s residents themselves. First Flight is silky, spicy and elegant, providing easy gratification and up-front drinkability.
First Flight California Pinot Noir pairs well with:
Beef bourguignon (of course!)
Spiced Squabs with onion compote
