Pinot Noir
The dried rose hips (sachet-like) perfume and satiny texture of well-made American Pinot Noirs are hedonistic joys to experience and beautifully complement almost every kind of food from
fish to steak. As complicated as it is to source the best offerings, when we come across great values, we buy in, and so should you! Be sure to visit our store regularly or talk to any of our
sales representatives and we’ll let you know when we do get a few cases of those extra-special, never-last-a-week Pinot Noirs in stock.
