This Pinot Noir wears a perfect ruby color, with many layers of aromatic from bacon, sun-ripened berries, and some notes of fresh fruit: more precisely grape fruit. The acidity and tannins are a perfect match for this full mouth Pinot.
Product Name: Jim Ball Vineyards
Winemaker: Greg LaFolette
Appellation: Mendocino County
Composition: 100% Pinot Noir
This blend by Jim Ball Vineyards and Greg LaFollette, exclusive for Kuvée owners, a Pinot Noir from Mendocino. This county is less known than its neighbors Napa and Sonoma, but has excellent handcrafted wines made at a reasonable price point.
One of California’s most accomplished winemakers, Greg La Follette has delved far deeper than most into the science behind the art of winemaking. He also fosters a fervent fascination with old world winemaking techniques. Both have fueled his intense interest in the texture and mouth-feel of wine, and, not surprisingly, leave an indelible mark on the wines he creates.
