2016 Pangloss Pinot Noir, Charles Vineyard


Ever since our friends Bill and Nancy Charles began farming their Anderson Valley vineyard in 2001, it has become one of the most sought-after sites for Pinot Noir in California. This wine is a particular favorite of ours, as its earthy complexity stands out as one of the signatures of outstanding Pinot Noir from this idyllic outpost.

Like the wines of Châteauneuf-du-Pape that inspired it, Tenacity is anchored by Grenache’s bright fruit and acidity. Moving in tandem with its savory companion Mourvèdre, this wine showcases the impressive potential of Rhône-inspired wines in Sonoma soil.
