Welcome to Wine Wednesday! What better way to get over the hump of a busy work week! Let’s explore and learn about a great wine! From Chardonnay sipped on a casual evening to a rare Cabernet for special occasions, each week we feature a wine available in our gifts. We’ll speak to the history of the makers behind the bottle, and we’ll tell you all about the flavors to be had inside.
This Week’s #WineWednesday – Boundary Post Ranch Kestrel Pinot Noir
About This Wine:
An agile falcon with keen eyes, the American Kestrel glides on cool winds that flow from San Pablo Bay, guarding the rows of Mitsuko’s Vineyard where Pinot Noir vines are nurtured. This Napa side of the Carneros AVA provides the ideal climate to produce some of the most engaging examples of Pinot Noir. The marine winds, low yield and long, flavor-building hang-time enables the fruit to reach peak flavor maturity and deep, concentrated flavor.
On the nose, enjoy baking spices, red raspberries and rose petal aromas. Lush flavors of dark cherry and wild earthiness round out this medium-bodied Pinot with an elegant, balanced acidity.
100% Pinot Noir
Food Pairing & Cellar Suggestions:
It is recommended that this wine is decanted for 30 minutes before tasting. Mouthwatering and vibrant, this silky Pinot Noir makes an excellent companion to a rack of lamb with fresh rosemary, garlicky mushrooms roasted in butter, or a cheeseboard carrying aged farmhouse cheddar.
