Tasting Notes:

The sun rises each morning over the beautiful Cinghiale Vineyard showering the treasured Del Dotto Pinot Noir grapes with sunshine love. The vineyard is perfectly located in the newly appointed Fort Ross-Seaview AVA. And if that isn't special enough, this wine is never discounted and sold exclusively at the winery, except for this Cellar Angels offer.

A glass of this Pinot Noir tantalizes with its dark ruby red color. The elegance shows through as you taste and enjoy flavors of dark cherries, ripe strawberries and black plum. The substantial weight on the palate offers the essential earthiness with subtle herbal notes, and finishes with soft silky tannins.

“The irrepressible David Del Dotto continues to offer a flamboyant presence in Napa Valley, but there is no discounting just how impressive his wines can be.”

~ Robert Parker Jr, The Wine Advocate.

"Wine is a reduction sauce. The barrel is the spice rack."

~
Dave Del Dotto, Founder

About Cinghiale Vineyard in Fort Ross-Seaview AVA:About the Del Dotto Legacy:

The “Cinghiale” (Italian for Wild Boar) Vineyard is named for the frequent inhabitants of the property, and was purchased in 2005. It is located in the recently approved AVA, Ft Ross-Seaview AVA. Overlooking the Pacific Ocean, it consists of 359 acres at the top of King's Ridge in the Sonoma Coast appellation, and is planted with 43 acres of Pinot Noir, Syrah, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc. In an effort to highlight the award-winning terroir, it features a variety of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay clones with lineages hailing from the top vineyards in Burgundy and top-rated clones from its neighbors in California.

Food Pairing Suggestions:
This full bodied Pinot Noir pairs well with pork, lamb and poultry. But don't be afraid to serve with game meats like wild boar or bison. Pair also with fish, heavier pasta dishes and grilled vegetarian items. Medium-hard cheeses such as Gouda, Gruyere, and Cheddars are also excellent pairings.
