2020 Estate Pinot Noir
2020 Estate Pinot Noir
Simpatico Ranch

This wine is deep garnet in color and has a brilliant clarity. The fruits aromas are distinctly of violets along with some blackberry, allspice and vanilla notes. On the palate, the same dark fruits mingle with flavors of pomegranate and mocha. Soft acidity allows the fruit characters to shine through, while the soft tannins linger on the palate. Versatality with food is a hallmark of all of our wines. Enjoy the 2020 Estate Pinot Noir with a variety of poultry, beef, pork and game, as well as vegetables, cheeses, olives, and savory dishes.

2019 BIN 6410 Pinot Noir
2019 BIN 6410 Pinot Noir

The 2019 Bin 6410 Pinot Noir exudes roasted hazelnut tones on the nose closely followed by the signature aromas of blackberry, cherry, and raspberry fruit for which this wine is known. On the palate, the spice tones and tannins from the wood are supported with the rich fruit and a clean crisp finish. This medium bodied Pinot Noir pairs well with fowl, smoked meats, hard cheeses, and most any food from the backyard grill. Drink now through 2023.

2020 BIN 5757 Chardonnay Unoaked
2020 BIN 5757 Chardonnay Unoaked

Bright fresh aromas of apple and pear with hints of lemon zest and flint make this wine stand out from typical Chardonnay.

Cuvée Marina Sparkling Wine
Cuvée Marina Sparkling Wine

The wine is a salmon pink tinted with rose-gold. Aromas of brioche, pear, and green apple pop from a generous mousse with persistent, small bubble beads. Our most recent release is our finest to date not by concentration, power or presence but by the fairy touch of understated delicacy and crystal clear fidelity of fruit notes of apple and pear. A beautiful aperitif style with a crisp acid finish like tiny diamonds exploding on the tongue.
