Pedroncelli Pinot Noir Dry Creek Valley 2005
Harvest conditions were good for the vintage. The fruit was destemmed and whole berry fermented. The juice and skins were cold soaked before yeast inoculation. Fermentation took ten days in a small stainless steel tank. Pumpovers were performed three times per day for maximum color extraction. The round, full and polished texture of this wine comes not only from the high quality fruit but also judicious use of oak-the wine was aged for 12 months in small French oak barrels. Limited Production.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

An elegant, medium bodied Pinot Noir. Aromas are bright, highlighted by strawberries and raspberries with clove and toast accents. In the mouth this wine is rich and velvety with juicy cherry and berry flavors. The finish is nicely balanced with moderate tannin.
Aged 12 months in French Oak.
