About This Wine:
Napa. Sonoma. Paso Robles. You’d probably recognize Napa and Sonoma as hotbeds of Pinot Noir in California. But Paso Robles? Absolutely.
Located roughly half-way between Los Angeles and San Francisco, Paso Robles has emerged as one of the Golden State’s most dependable hubs of winemaking. While numerous grape varieties are grown in the region, Pinot Noir has been a star from the very beginning. And it just keeps getting better and better as ideal vineyard sites are identified, attracting quality-focused winemakers from throughout the state and beyond.
Pinot Noir often is considered a variety that becomes even more “elevated” and enjoyable when the wine is aged in oak barrels. The 2021 Long Street is an excellent example as the fruit impressions from the grapes dance with the spice notes of the oak. Add a thick, juicy steak to the occasion and equation, and you’re in for a memorable wining and dining experience.
