No. 7

Pinot Noir
Description

This vintage is currently sold out and not available for purchase.

Nº 7 symbolizes the time when Jean-Charles, at the age of 7, snuck a few tastes of some older Burgundies that his parents were serving at a party. For Jean- Charles, the experience not only developed his palate, but the seed was planted for his lifetime's passion and work.

Tasting Notes
Aroma: 

On the nose, you find notes of dried cherry, persimmon, pomegranate, with a hint of umami-earthiness. 

Palate: 

As the flavors spread across your palate, the tart cherry notes lead to a dried cranberry element. Burgundian in style, this bright Pinot Noir evokes the memory of wind blowing across a sandy plot of earth. The flavors dance across your palate, leading to a long, lingering finish that leaves you wanting for more.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

With notes of bacon fat and smoke, intermingled with earthiness and rich fruit, it is a perfectly complex bottle of Pinot Noir to pair with food. This wine has a beautiful, high acidity, typical of the Sonoma Coast.
