About This Wine:
From its historic home in France’s Burgundy appellation to the Willamette Valley of Oregon, and from Santa Barbara County to the North Coast of California, fabulous renditions of Pinot Noir are being crafted.
What is it that makes Pinot Noir so special? While its aromas are enticing, its flavors are complex and its finish is long, the real allure of Pinot Noir is its mouthfeel — wine-speak for how it feels in your mouth. It’s another way of expressing texture, and when it comes to Pinot Noir, texture comes in layers.
By that definition, the 2019 Braxton Hall Central Coast Pinot Noir is a benchmark rendition of the variety. Once in the mouth, the flavors seem to come in waves, including an array of fruit impressions, as well as notes from the oak aging regimen. It’s a wine that can take center stage on any important occasion.
