Canaille Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir 2019Regular price $33.00 Save $-33.00
From our friend and wine expert Charles Antin comes his fourth vintage of our favorite California Pinot Noir for Burgundy lovers. Charles works with top vineyard sites and selects the best three barrels from the harvest. The wine is very Burgundian when you first open it and after a few hours the sunshine and ripeness of California starts to creep in. Tart and ripe strawberries, raspberries, cranberries, baking spices, sandalwood, cardamom, fresh leaves, cedar, soft granite. So good.
