"...aromas of dark cherry, spice, fertile earth and mesquite. Mid weight plus flavors of black cherry, blueberry-pomegranate and cherry cola are embellished with toasty oak in the background. Wellrounded, integrated tannins and texturally appealing with a soft and sleek mouthfeel..."
– RG, PinotFile - June 2017

"There's plenty of 'luxury-level' California Pinot Noir out there, but a lot of it is a little too made-up for my taste. This one’s got more modest—and I think more proper—proportions and a price to match."
– Ian Cauble, Master Sommelier - February 2017

Tasting Notes

The Founders Reserve Pinot Noir is bursting with black cherry, dark plum, and sweet tobacco, mingling with undertones of savory spice. It's ripe core of fruit is blanketed in silky soft tannin. Notes of earth are made complete with 60% new French oak, leading to a long, velvety finish.

Pairs well with filet mignon, braised duck, rich pasta & wild mushrooms.

Vineyards

Roberts Road Vineyard brings lively fruit flavors and nice body, with Swan and Dijon 777 clones by adding a bit of extra texture and weight. Generally riper, bolder flavors, it often does well with more heavily toasted barrels. Sangiacomo Vineyard located in cooler climate Los Carneros adds a layer of Pommard for spice additional richness rounding out the profile.

Winemaking

Picked in the darkness of the early morning hours, all grapes immediately subjected to rigorous hand sorting and refinement process.  Whole berries are gently delivered to tank. Cold soaks last five to seven days, and fermentations are managed via a combination of delestage and pumpovers.  Extended maceration ranging from three to four weeks fine-tuned tannin profiles, allowing us to perfect mouth feel and wine complexity. This wine was aged 9 months in 100% French oak, 60% of which was new.
