The first sip of the California BĂ¶en Pinot Noir envelops the mouth with a velvety richness. Flavors of bright cherry, dried herbs and hints of vanilla, is supple and sumptuous, to the finish.
When Charlie Wagner of Caymus gave his kids a choice of varietals to launch a brand around, his son Joe picked Pinot Noir. After his wildly successful Belle Glos and Meiomi brands, Joe Wagner turns his attention to making terroir-driven River Pinots. It opens with classic aromas of red plum, strawberry and pepper that give way to warm spice and raspberry flavors wrapped in persistent tannins. Pour this food-friendly bargain with anything from grilled salmon to lamb chops and watch it disappear!
