The deepest, darkest, smoothest Pinot in our collection, with notes of black cherries, plums, mocha, vanilla, and caramel. Grapes for this darker side of Pinot come from premier, cool-climate growing regions in Monterey County. After harvest, we put our grapes through a French process called "Saigne." What is Saigne, you ask? Well, it's when some of the lighter colored wine is removed before it has time to soak into the grape skins. And why would you do that, you may ask? To give it its deep, full-bodied flavor and dark colorbecause we all know that Black is the new Noir.
