“This is the first non-vineyard designate made by Jim Maresh. Pale to medium ruby in color, the 2016 Pino Noir Old Vines has a lovely pure nose of pink peppercorn, dried black tea leaves, red and black licorice and violets with dried cranberries, red cherries and layers and layers of spice. Medium to full-bodied, it has amazing concentration of flavor in the mouth, blossoming out to pure red fruits and spicy layers, with cinnamon and autumn leaves accents, very fine-grained tannins and juicy acidity, finishing very, very long with tons of earth-laced fruit. Wow! 1,040 cases produced.” 96 pts, Wine Advocate
Pair with Mushroom Pizza
This is a fresh and light-hearted style of Chianti, crafted from 100% Sangiovese and briefly aged in oak. A friendly and versatile Tuscan red that is a pizza weeknight dinner no-brainer!
Pair with Cheese Pizza
The Rhine’s Nierstein village is home to the steep Hipping hillside vineyard, with it famous slate and clay soil contributing a rich peach character to its wines. This zesty late-harvest Riesling is an intense and focused style. Medium-sweet on the palate, it remains light and vibrant with delicious flavors of ripe pineapple, lemon, peach, and honey followed by a lively mineral finish.
Pair with Hawaiian Pizza
Soft, juicy, and downright gulpable, this is a great value from one of Zinfandel’s favorite growing regions in California. With flavors of blackberry, cherry jam and chocolate, this is just the thing to bring to a pizza party or pop open for a ‘me night.’
