VIP: Very Important Pinot

"Pinot Noir should be sensual and alluring. As the meal progresses the wine should be taking you on a journey. Different flavors continue to unfold. It should have a pretty, elegant side, but still give forth a richness that stands up to any dish. This one is all that." - Guy Davis, winemaker

Spend five minutes with winemaker Guy Davis and you’ll see that he oozes a palpable passion for Pinot Noir – a sentiment that is readily apparent in his product. Nestled in the heart of Sonoma County, Davis pursues his passion in the cool, Russian River Valley, an ideal climate for producing world-class Pinot Noir.

As the winner of two gold medals, the Davis Pinot Noir is a sensual choice for a romantic dinner or a five-course spread. The perfect food wine, it’s not only versatile, but its lighter weight means it won’t overpower the meal.

Crisper and riper than its French counterparts with a lush finish, this California rendition is a real stunner that certainly matches Burgundy’s finest in terms of quality, but not in terms of price! You’ll find it suitable for every palate, from those just getting acquainted with the fruit-driven red to the most discerning red Burgundy buyer. One sip and your passion will be ignited.

Tasting Notes

Sweet cherry center gives way to brown spice and leather – delicate but forceful, pretty yet penetrating, the flavors follow suit with a silky, soft finish that lingers and brings you back for more; a true natural beauty.

Serving Suggestions

Roast turkey or chicken, salmon, sushi or grilled tuna.

Perfect for the wine lover who:
