BERESINI VINEYARDS Pinot Noir, Carneros

Regular price $0.00 $40.00 Sale

WHY WE LOVE IT:

  • Carneros Small lot, vineyard designated
  • The earthiest Pinot - Steve knows his craft 
  • Grapes sold to high-end producers including Tor Kenward

WINEMAKER: Steve Beresini worked with master winemaker Andre Tchelistcheff at Niebaum-Coppola and at Joseph Phelps and Grgich Hills. 

WHAT WE TASTED:  It is initially crisp acidity with strawberry, then earthy and minty notes that pair well with food. The nose is fresh cherry and cranberry all the way.

AVA DESIGNATED: Caneros, Napa

WHAT WE PAIRED:

  • Sautéed salmon cakes with caper-lemon beurre blanc, mesclun salad
  • Broiled croque madame, sauce béchamel, fried egg
  • Mahi Mahi with mango, red onion and cilantro salsa

PERSONALITY: Few winemakers still share in Napa Valley’s icon winemaking era when California won the historic 1976 Paris Tasting. Steve Beresini learned from these masters. 

TECHNICAL:

  • 3 clones - 49% Swann, 39% 777, 12% Calera
  • Aged 11 months in French oak
