With a case (12 bottle) purchase of the 2012 Estate Pinot Noir, the winery has generously offered to "upgrade" two of the bottles with one 2015 Estate Reserve Pinot Noir and one 2014 Estate Library Pinot Noir (which is tasting phenomenal right now). Get ready for your own at-home vertical tasting event!

Tasting Notes:

Your summer Pinot Noir is here! Light-medium in body with delicate, fruit-driven aromas, this is a delightful sipper. A touch of spice, with fresh, ripe aromas of red cherry and cranberry dotted with notes of vanilla extract, nutmeg and sweet oak. Red fruits follow through on the palate, where smooth tannins and balanced acidity offer a smooth, yet mouthwatering finish.

Food Pairing Suggestions:
Pinot Noir from a cool growing region like Jamieson Canyon in the southern part of Napa makes for an easy wine to pair with a wide range of dishes. Try it with duck, lamb, chicken and roasted turkey or salmon, lighter pasta dishes and white veggie pizza. Cheeses like Edam, Gouda, Gruyere, light Cheddars and Chèvre are excellent pairings. Fruit or nut based desserts are also good selections.
About the Winery
Elkhorn Peak Cellars While Napa Valley is typically known for its Cabernet Sauvignon, there’s a hidden gem called Elkhorn Peak – the oldest and most developed vineyard in the area – producing exceptional, small batch Pinot Noir. Learn more
