Three new wines were released yesterday!
2016 Middle Jane Pinot Noir Lot Earthy, Light.
Elegant and lithe with red plum, cherry and fresh raspberry balanced by an herbal note of forest floor with soft tannins and a lingering finish. Pair with grilled salmon, flatbread with caramelized onions and Gruyère cheese, and happiness
2016 Middle Jane Pinot Noir Lot G: Earthy, Light. Bright and complex with red cherry and ripe raspberry, balanced by richer notes of coffee and vanilla bean with round tannins and a long finish. Pairs with herb-roasted chicken or vegan mushroom risotto paired with roasted vegetables and dinner with friends on a random Thursday night.
2018 Conte de la Terre Cabernet Sauvignon:Earthy, Bold. Concentrated flavors of blackberry, black cherries and wild raspberries on a layered, medium-bodied frame with a lingering finish. Perfect on its own or with bold-flavored foods. Try kabobs fresh off the grill, layered with meat and peppers, or grilled artichoke hearts dipped in vegan aioli.
So..What's the point in offering 2 Pinot Noirs you ask from the same label?
The two Middle Janes are the same varietal, they hail from the same estate, and the grapes were harvested the same year. But they're different! Because each wine is made from different grape clones, they taste different from one another. Each was carefully, thoughtfully, lovingly produced in the manner best suited to the particular vines from which the grapes came.
These two wines are a terrific example of how the vine's ancestry and the winemaker's methods can impact the profile of a wine. We definitely recommend trying both and comparing them for yourself. You know, for science.
