The Best Quality to Value Ratio California Pinot Noir

Byron Kosuge has been making wine for over 3 decades now.  He honed his skills at various great wineries in California and France.  While working in Carneros he befriended two guys who ran a vineyard management company.  When they planted a small vineyard next to their work shop, Byron came up with the name “The Shop” and the rest (15 years later) is history.  Byron has created a good following for his brand, and so have many of my customers. But his Chardonnay making goes back 30 years and has been his big passion, although he did not add this to his portfolio till 2008.  The 2016 is truly amazing and a great wine for your Buck!

The wine emerges from the glass with dark red stone fruit a hint of spice, nuttiness and licorice. This is lush and fleshy, Pinot Noir that is loaded with class and pedigree. The wine is medium to full in body and flavor and finishes long and strong.

Winemaker notes: I’m loving where my 2016 Pinot Noir is now. The 2016 Shop is a very different wine than the 2015. The 2015 Shop was pretty, forward and delicious from the beginning. The 2016 was the opposite–brooding and standoffish. But it has come out of its shell, and emphatically so. It may be my favorite Shop ever.  The Shop is always one of the biggest and fleshiest of my offerings and the 2016 is no different; a bit of tannin on the finish gives it a pleasing lift and persistence. The combination of spice and fruit signals that the wine is from Carneros
