Grape(s): Pinot Noir
Localization: California, USA
Tasting Notes: TEMBO Pinot Noir is bright red magenta in the glass. The nose is bright with high-toned red fruits, violet candy, and toasted bread. The palate is extremely supple with flavors of cranberry jam, red cherries, and pie crust.
The Domain: Vineyard-Sourced from Herringer Vineyards in Clarksburg, California. The Herringer family are pioneers of sustainable agriculture and like us, believe in treating the earth responsibly. Their passion for viticulture and soil science is reflected in the high-quality Pinot Noir we purchase from them every year.
Vintage-The 2019 vintages will be remembered as one of the best of the decade. A wet winter followed by a wet spring started the year off a little late but we needed that water! Northern California did not suffer the usual mid-July/August heat waves, frankly, the summer was extremely mild compared to most. As the fruit slowly ripened and rain remained absent, we realized the crop was short and the growing season nearly perfect. A great vintage for winemakers and consumers alike.
