Cherry Pie Pinot Noir 2013, Stanly Ranch
Cherry Pie is another innovative offering from visionary winemaker Jayson Woodbridge, creator of Hundred Acre and Layer Cake Wines. Jayson sought out the owners of Stanly Ranch, on the Napa side of the Los Carneros appellation – their grapes were some of the most sought after Pinot Noir grapes in California. Then, in early 2008 while perusing New York’s Soho District, Jayson happened upon the Campton Gallery during its exhibition of paintings by artist TR Colletta. Like TR Colletta’s art, Jayson’s art is evocative, complex, textural and fundamentally American. His Cherry Pie Pinot Noirs are dazzling in their rich, layered, sensory excellence and are redolent of the flavors and aromas of something delicious baking in a warm kitchen – comforting, inviting, and with their rich, dense, dark fruit flavors.
The 2013 Stanly Ranch is blockbuster Los Carneros Pinot Noir. Saturated ruby hue, concentrated black cherry and red fruit aromas introduce a full creamy palate. Layers upon layers of fresh red fruit, strawberry jam, cocoa and toast. Mouthwatering, ripe red fruit and buttery vanilla linger on the palate. Beautifully textured and ready to enjoy.
