Wine.Woot purchases now bypass your cart entirely! This means you gotta buy Wine.Woot items on their own, using your Amazon Payments account. You can't mix 'em up with stuff from our other sites. This cowboy's ridin' solo.

Be aware that anything in your cart from the other Woot sites is still out there and looking forward to your return. We'd hate for anything to sell out while you're reading this.

2013 Winery Block Pinot Noir
Hand picked from a single 4 acre block and a single clone, (Pommard 5) the grapes are destemmed into small open-top half ton macro bin fermenters or into stainless steel tanks where they are cold-soaked (using dry ice) for four to seven days. Before fermentation is complete, the new wine is gently pressed from the skins and transferred to French oak barrels. Fermentation then goes to completion in the barrels, allowing us to stir the lees as the wine goes through malolactic fermentation.
 
Very complex with a deep ruby red color. By nose, toasted oak, plum compote and cardamom. By mouth, black berry, plum with soft but noticeable tannins.
 
2012 Estate Pinot Noir
By nose; cassis, licorice, black berry, red cherry, raspberry and roasting herbs. By mouth; cola nut, dark cherry, black berry and dried herbs. This is an elegant and very versatile wine with food. It is delicious with salmon, cioppino, smoked duck, pork tenderloin with rashers of prosciutto ham, heirloom carrots and spaghetti squash, classic coq au vin, mushroom ragout on sourdough toast, triple crème cheese from Cowgirl Creamery.
 
2012 was a fabulous vintage. Newly replanted vineyards, heightened wine making and the uniqueness of Green Valley Pinot Noir all come together in a truly gorgeous bottle of wine with raspberry, red cherry flavors, a very pretty, soft, ripe entry and a long silky finish.
 
Artisanal Winemaking: Hand picked grapes from 12 blocks, representing five clones (33% 13/Martini Selection, 33% clone 828, 16% Dijon clones. 13% Pommard 5 clone and 5% Calera clone) are de-stemmed into stainless steel tanks or half ton macro-bins, where they are cold-soaked (using dry ice) for up to seven days. Before fermentation is complete, the new wine is gently pressed from the skins and transferred to French oak barrels. Fermentation then goes to completion in the barrels, allowing us to stir the lees (batonage) as the wine ages prior to blending and bottling
