Beringer Founders’ Estate Pinot Noir is from select vineyards throughout the California Delta. These vineyards are bathed in sunshine during the day and experience cool nights that allow for even ripening of the grapes. Some fruit from the Central Coast, influenced by the marine layer, were added for bright fruit flavors. The grapes were picked as soon as they exhibited the ideal balance of acidity and ripeness.
Beringer Founders’ Estate Pinot Noir is immediately fruit forward with bright flavors of red cherry and currant, beautifully complemented by cedar and cinnamon spice. It is a perfect pairing with grilled salmon, roast turkey, or brie cheese.
Gentle winemaking techniques were used to protect the delicate qualities of the Pinot Noir grapes and to preserve the grapes’ lush color and bright fruit flavors. The wine was aged on French oak for five months to add depth, complexity and spice.
