About This Wine

Many wineries adhere to age-old techniques and styles simply to conform to tradition.

Not at Nu Wines, where the winemaker has free rein to use technology, innovative thinking and a dash of daring to produce outstanding wines. That winemaker is Erica Myers, who has both academic training and more than a decade of hands-on work at some of California’s top wineries.

Myers’ experience has taught her how to make technically sound wines that taste amazing. At the winery, she employs meticulous cluster sorting, then gentle de-stemming and additional hand sorting. The grapes ferment in small, open-top tanks linked with a computer-controlled tank system to monitor fermentation temperatures.

After barrel aging, Myers’ expert palate gets to work as she samples the finished wine lots seeking unusual blends that push the boundaries of tradition and raise the bar on flavor. Take a sip of the 2016 Nu Wines Pinot Noir, and savor Eric Myers’ expertise.

About Pinot Noir

Very sensitive to climate and handling in winery, this fickle grape of Burgundy yields low tannin and acidity, medium colors and lifespan. Classic berry, cherry and currant flavors, silky textures typically balanced with spicy or floral tones.
