We are excited to present our "To the Point" Pinot Noir, made exclusively for NakedWines.com. We want to thank the Angels for making this tasty wine possible, wishes fulfilled!
This is an elegant and lush Pinot Noir with aromas of red fruit, especially strawberry, and notes of brown sugar. The supple palate offers cherry and cranberry flavors with hints of spice. Excellent acidity and soft, round tannins lead to a long finish
Winemaker and proprietor Daniel LeFrancois and consulting winemaker Scott Peterson blended our Pinot Noir using lots selected from vineyards found in Northern and Central California. Each lot added its own unique layer to the final wine profile. Traditional, minimalistic winemaking techniques result in a wine that allows classic varietal characteristics and true California terroir to shine through in every glass.

Pinot Noir, one of the classic Burgundian varietals, has become a popular red wine for fans looking for silky texture. The higher acidity makes Pinot Noir a perfect complement for salmon and other fish. It is also an excellent pairing for milder cheeses, pastas, and salads.
