A wealth of savory earthiness is met by layers of balanced black cherry, wood and sage in this well-made, attractively priced wine. The oak and tannin are well mannered and integrated, allowing room for the acidity and subtle baking spice to linger. Virginie Boone, July 2020

The Tasting Panel 90
Smooth, fresh and earthy with bright cherry and lively spice; silky texture, crisp acidity and a long finish. Anthony Dias Blue, June 2020

The nose jumps right out of the glass with classic Pinot Noir aromas of strawberry, shiitake mushrooms, bay laurel and soy. The savory characters of the aroma go straight to the pallet with an amazing combination of that savory and the sweet red fruit characters. There is just enough very high-quality French oak to weave these two amazing characters together. The beautiful silky texture of the wine makes a mouthfeel that is at first expansive and then bright, crisp and inviting you back for another sip. A long lingering aftertaste is highlighted by orange peel, rosemary and toasted hazelnuts.

Routestock CellarsRouteStock creates wines from classic grape varieties grown along well-known routes in the world's most respected wine regions. Tried, trusted and true to their routes, these wines are hand crafted by our winemakers to be approachable and a reliable favorite.

Route 29: Route 29 travels through the heart of Napa Valley -- a lovely home for Sauvignon Blanc. On a drive down Route 29 you will pass many of the vineyards that supplied grapes for this Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc.

Route 121: Route 121 meanders through Carneros ("ram" in Spanish), a region once known for its sheep populations. On a drive down Route 121 you will pass many of the vineyards that supplied perfectly ripe grapes for this Carneros Chardonnay.

Carneros is well-known as a cool-climate region, perfect for growing Chardonnay. The morning fog and afternoon breezes off the chilly San Pablo Bay cool the region, while the Napa and Sonoma valleys to the north heat it up. This heat causes the air to draw inland over Carneros, drying the vines of the moist morning fog. As night falls, the fog rolls in, protecting the vines from potential morning sun.

Route 99W: Established in 1930, Route 99W is part of the Pacific Coast Highway which travels north/south through some of Willamette Valley's most notable vineyards. On a drive down Route 99W, you will pass many of the vineyards that supplied perfectly ripe grapes for this Willamette Valley Pinot Noir.

Route 29: Route 29 travels through the heart of Napa Valley, which is arguably a perfect home for Cabernet Sauvignon. On a drive down Route 29, you will pass many of the vineyards that supplied perfectly ripe grapes for this Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
