“Aromas of dense black cherry blended with white pepper, blueberry, and vanilla gently arise from the glass. The vibrant palate coats with boysenberry; intermingles with Santa Rosa plum and mocha; and is sustained by a dense finish.”
– Winemakers Sean Thompson and Hugh Davies
-The Davies family of Schramsberg Vineyards and J. Davies Estate in the Napa Valley is pleased to release its fourth vintage of still wines made from Pinot Noir. The family’s experience with Pinot Noir dates back to 1967, when Jack and Jamie Davies first used this elegant red varietal to make their inaugural vintage of Schramsberg Blanc de Noirs sparkling wine. Over the 45 years following that first use, Schramsberg’s winemakers have built long-lasting relationships with some of the best Pinot Noir growers in the North Coast. Developing upon this passion, history, and experience, second-generation vintner Hugh Davies and winemaker Sean Thompson are proud to present this vineyard-designate Pinot Noir wine from the 2012 vintage.
“Firm and spicy, with savory dried herb, ripe cherry and berry flavors woven together, supported by floral scents and ample tannins. Drink now through 2021.”
