100% pinot noir from California’s beloved Sonoma Coast AVA. Sourcing is elite, with most of the fruit coming from a vineyard on the famed Olivet Road in the Russian River Valley. A customer favorite in past vintages, it’s gotten even better with the 2019 because of the top-flight sourcing.
Bright ruby red in color, this has a pure pinot nose of roses, black cherries, berries, and baking spices. The palate deftly balances rich red and black fruit with sweet spices and refreshing orange peel. With a long finish and supple texture, this easy to drink pinot has the complexity to lure you back again and again for another taste. Priced to be your go-to “house” Pinot Noir, Bench really shines with grilled salmon or thick grilled cheeseburgers with the works.
