The grapes for this elegant kosher wine come from California's Edna Valley, prime Pinot territory just north of the cool coastal vineyards immortalized in the film "Sideways." Here the vineyards enjoy ocean breezes that pass through the east to west running valley, providing the perfect climate for expressive Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes. Sweet beet and cherry aromas mingle with red fruit and spice flavors in this perfect Pinot for consuming alongside roasted fowl. Open this alongside an herb-slathered, roasted chicken for best results.
