Pinot Noir
Description

As the Golden Gate Bridge represented an ENIGMATIC entry into the newly developing Northern California wine country, it’s yet to be fully discovered potential awaited as a young Jean-Charles Boisset dreamt of turning the DELICATE grapes into wines never before imagined. From Napa to Sonoma and now Marin, his vision has become a reality in this REFINED and spirited Pinot Noir.

Tasting Notes

The No. 37 Pinot Noir opens with aromas of black cherry, pomegranate, and mushroom.

On the palate, this bright Pinot Noir is layered with flavors dark fruit including plum, fig, and blackberries with an underlying touch of wet forest floor, this medium-bodied Pinot Noir showcases delicate finesse with well-integrated tannins and a medium finish.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

No. 37 recalls the year the Golden Gate Bridge was completed, opening the gateway to the California wine country. It was this moment that the spirit of American discovery was expressed with California energy, and evoked the dream that Jean-Charles had the moment he crossed it at 11 years old on his first journey into wine country. “I had a dream to parachute past the Golden Gate Bridge onto a surfboard on the bay below! Completed in 1937, the bridge is the symbol of Marin County, California wine country, and the pioneering spirit of America. And we believe Marin is the future of Pinot Noir in California!”
