The Sutter Home Pinot Noir opens with rich aromatic layers of raspberry, black
cherry and violet with just a touch of plum. This elegant wine is mediumbodied
with a polished structure that leads to flavors of cherry-cola, berry jam
and spice. Try pairing this classic California Pinot Noir with tender lamb kebabs
and roasted seasonal vegetables.
The grapes for the Sutter Home Pinot Noir were selected from vineyards in
Lodi and the marine-influenced Delta region. These vineyards consistently
produce classic and beautiful California Pinot Noir fruit and the blend from the
two regions creates a balanced and complex wine.
To preserve the Pinot Noir’s fragrant varietal aromas and delicate, bright
flavors, the wine was cold-fermented in stainless steel tanks. Following
fermentation, the wine was briefly aged on French and American oak.
