Ricochet Pinot Noir 2018

Pinot Noir produces some of the world’s loveliest red wines, but this noble grape variety only thrives in certain regions. Luckily for you, our California expert knows exactly where to look for top-class Pinot Noir.

Ricochet hails from the Anderson Valley, part of Northern California’s premium Mendocino County. This under-the-radar region is one of California’s coolest sites, benefitting from Pacific Ocean breezes and morning fog, both of which help the grapes retain freshness and prevent over-ripening. In other words, Anderson Valley is perfectly situated to produce elegant Pinot Noir – no wonder Pinot makes up half of the region’s plantings.

And thanks to the superb 2018 vintage, Ricochet showcases everything that’s wonderful about California Pinot Noir. You’re in for expressive rose and ripe berry aromas, followed by vibrant, forest-fruit flavors on the silky, fresh palate. As with all fine Pinot, Ricochet makes a delightful (lightly chilled) red-wine aperitif or a delicious match for grilled salmon, roasted poultry, or creamy vegetarian dishes.
