Pinot Noir - Howling Moon
We were enchanted by this straightforward, approachable Pinot Noir from Howling Wolf Winery. Dedicated California vintners have been working since the 1800s to match the best clone variety to the proper climate and vineyard site. This wine is evidence of their success – Howling Wolf Pinot Noir is from the cool Pacific Coast climate of Sonoma County, one of the great AVAs for Pinot in California.
It’s apparent from the first sip that attention to grape selection, low yields, and careful oak handling were employed – there’s a balance of silky ripeness and elegance with a touch of California sunshine in the glass.
Characteristics Fresh, clean cherry and anise aromas are followed by pleasingly bright cherry and strawberry flavors with a hint of nutmeg.
Silky smooth tannins and middleweight body
Grape Varietals: 100% Pinot Noir
