Silk Hat Pinot Noir 2018

California’s Lodi is “one of the top wine regions in the country,” where winemakers “have quietly started producing some of the state’s best wines” (vinepair.com). It’s also home to a bevy of luscious, fruit-rich reds – like this exclusive Pinot Noir.

Silk Hat has something of a ‘magical’ origin story. It comes from a vineyard that was once flooded, with vines completely submerged and some taken out entirely by beavers in need of materials to build their dams. Eventually, the waters subsided and the vines reappeared ... and just a few seasons later, they produced the fruit for this gorgeous Pinot Noir.

Showing all the ripeness of the stellar 2018 vintage, Silk Hat has emerged like the proverbial rabbit from the hat. Bursting with juicy cherry flavor and a velvety-smooth texture, it’ll make a delicious match for salads, meaty salmon, roasted turkey, and more.
