    Sporting a deep ruby-purple color, the 2016 Pinot Noir Joli Coeur leaps from the glass with red and purple flower notes over scents of crushed blackberries, black cherries and mulberries, with nuances of aniseed, cinnamon toast and underbrush, plus a touch of bark. Medium to full-bodied and firmly structured with a great core of rich, seductive black fruits, it has gorgeous perfume and incredible length. A barrel sample to be bottled in January 2018, 3,000 cases are expected to be made.

  • California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
