Palencia's Pinot Noir showcases the versatility and unique microclimate found in the Ancient Lakes AVA. This region, better known for its aromatic white varieties is quickly showing its potential with red varieties. The cooler climate helps develop ripeness with the pinnacle of flavors with longer hang time. Dark ripe cherry, cranberry intermingle with hints of licorice and caramel on the pallet. A gentle cool fermentation followed by 12 months of aging in 100 % French barrels with minimal intervention produces a Pinot Noir with purity of fruit. Enjoy with soft cheeses, seasonal fish or peppered steak.
On rare occasions, a chosen vintage of a wine may sell out or be replaced by a new release after your order is placed. With bottles of wine listed under $15, we will not hold up an order and will simply automatically substitute the wine with the comparable vintage. Please be assured that we will only substitute with a vintage for the same type, varietal and winery.
During extreme weather during the Summer and Winter months we do recommend delaying shipments. We do not like to ship if the weather is above 85 degrees or below 32 degrees. To ensure the safety of your product we do recommend holding the shipment. We will hold in our temperature controlled facility until weather permits.
During Checkout you may Choose the Hold Until Safe and we will ship it once weather conditions are suitable
In this case, we will watch the weather closely and will remove the hold and ship your order as soon as conditions permit. The release dates will vary, and because there is no specified date for delivery, the warehouses will ship it as weather permits. If the Hold Until Safe option is released and your order is shipped, you will receive a shipping notice with the tracking number link.
