A well under $40 Napa Gem


The Story: 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 workshop, Byron came up with the name “The Shop” and the rest (almost 20 years later) is history. Byron has created a good following for his brand, and so have many of my customers. The 2019 Pinot Noir 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 a 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: The 2019 The Shop Carneros Pinot Noir is in some ways a throwback to the riper, juicier style of the early Shop wines, but that is a product of the great 2019 vintage, rather than a change in style. I continue to pursue a fresher, more vibrant style for this wine in particular, and 2019 was no exception. Aged in a combination of concrete and neutral oak.
