Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Welcome to the darker side of Darcie Pinot. Each vintage we marvel at the bright cherry color of our Pinot Noir that seems to belie the intensity of the flavors. Then we wonder, what if there was a different approach? Wonder no more. Putting the moral ambiguity aside, we added to this special cuvée the darkest barrel of wine from the Firepit Red and unleashed the NOIR of Pinot Noir. A smoky, piquant nose invokes aromas of cranberry, red plum and fizzy Dr. Pepper. On the palate, it's full-bodied and fruit driven, while having that zippy Pinot quality that complements food and doesn't fatigue your guests. Whether you're at Thanksgiving dinner or rooting from your favorite team, this wine will fit right in.
Vineyard Notes
Ideally situated on a hillside overlooking a fertile valley floor in Monterey County sits the gently-sloping Blackjack Vineyard grown by Jerry Rava and sons Jerry Rava II and Chad Rava. The vineyard benefits immensely from foggy mornings, warm days and coastal breezes that pick up in the later afternoon, leading to cool nights.
