Warm sunny days coupled with cool nights, mixed with marine-induced fog makes California quite suitable for the early ripening Pinot Noir. Known for finesse more than force and verve more than vigor, Pinot Noir from California reflects the best of the Pacific coast with its ripe red fruit, smooth texture and good vibes. If you like well-balanced Pinot Noir with the right amount of acidity and ripeness, along with hints of oak and spice, California is your spot.
Hints of blueberries and raspberries backed by notes of flowers and spice. This easy-drinking Pinot Noir is no wallflower. Perfectly balanced and fresh, pair this wine with grilled salmon and red peppers or sautéed chicken with rosemary and thyme.

I keep reordering this wine because it's so enjoyable and the price makes it a bargain. This is a smooth, light touch that complements many dishes; not a complex wine, but an elegant and enjoyable red that won't overwhelm a meal. It doesn't need a lot of breathing to get the full flavor. It's ready to drink when the cork is pulled. I like it at slightly warmer than room temperature.
