new wine release
2017 Rouge de Noirs, Carneros
Our Rouge de Noirs is made with 100% Carneros Pinot Noir and is much like a brut Rosé. But it’s ever so slightly darker in color since it has a little more skin contact when it’s first made. The flavors and bouquet shadow our other Pinot Noirs but show delicacy and elegance. We love pouring this wine! And we love to pair it up with delicious recipes with lighter Asian flavors, smoked seafood, and especially charcuterie.
Winery Chef Kristine has developed her own recipe for a Smoked Pork Rillettes recipe and is excited to share it with you! This recipe is so lovely paired with our Rouge de Noir- the richness of the pork really contrasts beautifully with the elegant fruit and crisp, effervescence of the bubbly. The recipe is not difficult and freezes beautifully so you can enjoy your preparation easily more than once.
