NORIA WINES Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast

Regular price $47.00

WHY WE LOVE IT:

  • Sangiacomo Vineyard, 100% Pinot Noir
  • Beautiful wine aptly awarded in 2018 San Fransisco Wine Competition
  • Ideal tannic structure with beautiful flavor profiles of three clones

WINEMAKERNori Nakamura; Larsen Family, Artesa, Silenus, Jamieson Ranch, Pine Ridge

WHAT WE TASTED:

Dazzling red berry flavor expands on the palate. Supple acidity and refined tannins lift the mid-palate and provide the exquisite monthfeel with finesse and depth. A nuance of elegant oak notes adds a touch of spiciness and tension to the delightful finish. Sensual and transparent.

AVA DESIGNATED: Sonoma Coast

WHAT WE PAIRED:

  • Goat cheese brie and toasted walnuts
  • Seared Ahi Tuna atop wilted greens
  • Steak teriyaki with pan-fried shiitake mushrooms

PE­­RSONALITY: 

NORIA means water wheel in Spanish, which represents positive elements of life such as water, nature, flow, and energy. Nori and Maria are a darling couple focused 100% on this niche winemaking - fruity, smooth and elegant, like sake. The grapes are brought to Napa and handcrafted in small lots.
