2017 Greengate Pinot Noir


Since 2015 we have been able to work with our neighbors across the road: Greengate Ranch & Vineyard. The Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from this new vineyard reflect the cool climate and diverse soil profiles of the Edna Valley, so sourcing this fruit has been a natural choice for us here at C&C.

The 2017 vintage of Pinot Noir from Greengate showcases everything we love about this varietal: elegance, complexity, and long-lasting aromas and flavors.

This wine opens with notes of green olives and confectionary, followed by fresh plums and spice. There is just a hint of smoke from the new French oak barrels in which the wine was aged. Soft tannins lead to a smooth and long, lingering finish. We recommend enjoying this Pinot Noir with a beef ragout, duck confit, or seafood paella.
