Each vintage, our four finest barrels are blended to make our Reserve. Released after carefully considered bottle age, this wine will continue to evolve in the cellar, rewarding collectors with patience.

Blackberry compote

Notes of toffee, baking spice and black tea

Texture/Structure 

The palate is generous and mouth filling with tremendous flavor concentration, tension and length.

At The Table 

The Reserve Pinot will elevate a simple rustic meal such as grilled cedar plank salmon, duck confit salad, butternut squash soup, braised short-rib ragu or even carnitas tacos. And, if you’re willing to share with family, it will brighten special occasions feasts whether Thanksgiving Turkey or Christmas/Hanukah Goose.

Glassware 

A traditional Pinot Noir/Burgundy glass with a round bowl will convey this varietal’s profound aromatics and structural characteristics.

Serving and Cellar 

Serve at cellar temperature 55 – 60 ̊F. We suggest ten years of cellar-aging. This wine will continue to evolve and increase in complexity over time.

The Reserve Pinot Noir is a barrel selection, crafted from individual parcels from our Triple Black Slopes and Terres Basses vineyards.
