Tasting Notes:

CRU9 Wine currently makes four delicious wines, each with their own unique and meaningful name. The name behind the elegant 2015 Russian River Pinot Noir – See You In Your Dreams – comes from Faythe’s personal life and what she believes will resonate with people.

A glistening, transparent light garnet in the glass, the wine offers generous, rich aromatics that jump immediately from the glass. Fruit-forward, with cherry vanilla, strawberry jam, blackberry and dried violets up front, complimented by brown sugar, bakeshop spice and hints of tea leaf and forest floor. Velvety and palate-coating in the mouth, you’ll be treated to ripe blackberry and spicy red cherry fruit notes which lead to a very long, mouthwatering, enjoyable finish. In Faythe’s words, “Give her time to reveal herself. It will be well worth it. She was made for the long haul and is just starting to show off.”

Food Pairing Suggestions:
Try pairing this versatile, food friendly Pinot Noir with roasted root vegetables and herb roasted chicken. Or experiment with a grilled portabella topped with goat cheese and sautéed red onions. Grilled wild salmon or pepper crusted ahi tuna steaks will also pair quite well. When prepping a cheese course, choose firm, medium-flavored cheeses like Gruyere, Gouda and aged Cheddar. Cheers!

A Double Dose of Charity:

CRU9 Wine is intentional in crafting exceptional wines, cultivating relationships and promoting strong women who are learning how to raise themselves up. An advocate for positive change, CRU9 provides funds from each bottle purchased to two special causes that help level the playing field for survivors of human trafficking, domestic abuse, and homelessness:

house of hope logo_0House of Hope: This organization provides homeless mothers with individualized support and transitional housing to achieve secure families and permanent homes. Their vision is to end the cycle of homelessness for mothers and children with respect, empowerment, stewardship and accountability as our core values.

rubys place logoRuby’s Place: A non-profit agency that has provided shelter and supportive services since 1972 for families and individuals who experience domestic violence, and more recently human trafficking. Ruby’s Place was one of the first shelters for families and individuals in the Bay Area established by community volunteers.
