Pinot Noir is an almost impossible grape to grow in the warm climate of El Dorado County. Pinot is a temperamental grape on a good day and it is known in the wine industry as the "Heart Break Grape". We're heartbroken because we didn't get any fruit in 2010!
This is the first year CBC has made a Pinot Noir. Although it has textbook Pinot flavors, this wine is mostdefinitely has the El Dorado-style county style of big fruit, low tannins and a smooth finish. The classic earthiness of a rich Oregon Pinot shines in this wine and, honestly, we love it.
Why do we love Pinot Noir? Because it shines as a great example of CBC's long lineup of wines and leads with up-front strawberry and melon is flavors and it packs a black belt kick.
These grapes are grown at the 2600 foot level in remote Georgetown. They don't get ripe every year, so you can never tell when we'll make another one. Join our Ascendance Wine Club and you can get it our Pinot on a regular basis.
