California’s extraordinarily sunny autumn weather provides grapes an extended span of “hangtime” to develop an optimal balance of sweetness, natural acidity and mild tannin. Our growers, many of whom we have worked with for generations, can wait until the grapes are just right before picking them.
Hangtime wines are intentionally approachable and food-friendly, fruit-driven yet subtle and eminently balanced and drinkable. Our Pinot Noir, with its silky mouthfeel, juicy red fruit and savory forest floor notes, is compatible with a broad range of cuisines and is meant for everyday enjoyment after work, or at the dinner table with family and friends.
Millennials and young professionals find these California wines to be versatile, dependable and affordable. Pricing for these wines falls within one of the fastest growing categories, and they offer a very reasonable by-the-glass proposition.
