We won't name names, but some of wine country's most renowned wineries gets their Pinot Noir grapes from a local golf club in South Napa. This past year, the vineyard produced more than expected and one winery refused to take more than their contract specified, leaving a couple tons of insanely-high quality grapes without a home.
We got word and somehow were able to score this fruit before anyone figured out where it was going. So, we grabbed the grapes and drove that golf cart like we stole it, right off the course and into our cellar of mayhem.
This marks our first Pinot Noir in 4 years and good things come to those who wait. With 10% Mourvèdre, this wine is fresh and bright on the palate with silky, elegant tannins. If you're going to drink it right away, decant this baby for a few hours and get ready for bold flavors or bright red cherry, wild strawberry and hints of vanilla. We suggest laying it down for 6 months.
Causing mayhem at the 19th hole.
