Winemaker's Notes:

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this wine supports the Surfrider Foundation to help protect our oceans and beaches! Awards Accolades: <strong>Top 10 Summer Wines</strong> - <em>Gayot</em> - This first release of Pinot Noir for Surfrider displays silky texture and vivid aromas of Bing cherries and strawberries, with a hint of cinnamon. Racy flavors of strawberry jam and cherry cola tantalize the palate. Light to medium-bodied, this silky wine can take a slight chill, making it a great red wine to sip on a warm summer evening. A mellow red that doesn't overpower, the Surfrider Pinot Noir can be served as an aperitif with fruit and cheese, or paired with a main course like salmon or roast beef And if you plan to hit the beach this summer, you'll be glad to know that the Surfrider label donates a portion of its proceeds to Surfrider Foundation—a grassroots non-profit environmental organization dedicated to protecting oceans and beaches.<br/><br/> About This Wine Elegant, with racy favors of strawberry jam and cherry cola, with a hint of cinnamon on the nose. Light to medium-bodied, this silky wine can even take a slight chill.<br/><br/> Why is Pinot Noir all the rage? Find out when you savor our first Surfrider Pinot Noir release! As always with our Surfrider line, a portion of the proceeds go to the Surfrider Foundation, a grassroots, non-proft, environmental organization that works to protect our oceans, waves and beaches.<br/><br/> About Rosenthal - The Malibu Estate: Fine wine from Malibu? Southern California's Malibu, home to movie stars and Bay Watch?<br/><br/> Yes, these wines are from grapes grown in Malibu not on the famous beach, but in a scenic valley four miles from the coast, 1,400-feet up, above the coastal fog, in the AVA Malibu Newton Canyon.<br/><br/> George Rosenthal, owner of movie studios, hotels, and other enterprises, first planted vineyards at his 250 acre estate in 1987, after spending two years checking soil and weather to make sure he planted the correct varietals in the correct locations.<br/><br/> 25 acres of hillside vines are planted in this unique microclimate, where cool breezes filter into Newton Canyon in the evening, tempering warm, sunny days. Even with this boutique size, individual plots of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc are separately vinified and barrel-aged before blending.<br/><br/> Winemaker Christian Roguenant strives to bring out the unique terroir of the site. The reds are unfiltered and unfined, and the Chardonnay does not go through ML. All the grapes come from the estate vineyards.<br/><br/> Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Chardonnay can be enjoyed in some of LA's toniest restaurants, and some of Hollywood's top stars have sipped the wines at the estate.<br/><br/> You may not be able to wrangle an invitation to the vineyard (then again, you might), but you can now enjoy these wines at your own – estate”.<br/><br/> Technical Analysis: <strong>pH:</strong> 3.5<br/><br/> <strong>Alcohol:</strong> 13.0%<br/><br/> <strong>TA:</strong> .62<br/><br/> <strong>Brix at Harvest:</strong> 24.8<br/><br/> <strong>Oak:</strong> 35% New French Oak<br/><br/> <strong>Fermentation:</strong> Cold soaked for 10 days at 55F. Fermented at 82F open-top. Extended maceration 10 days post dryness.<br/><br/> <strong>Closure:</strong> Screw top<br/><br/> Vinted by Rosenthal - The Malibu Estate<br/><br/>
