Much like the energetic cheers of football fans, the red berry aromas are just as boisterous. This Pinot Noir is fresh and expressive, with nuanced layers of pink peppercorn, pomegranate, and leather supported by a hint of floral potpourri that exemplify why Etude makes one of the best Pinot Noirs in CA. To enhance every touchdown moment, we recommend serving this red with cheeseburger sliders.

Donum 2021 Carneros Pinot Noir

The Carneros Pinot Noir is our flagship wine made every vintage since Donum’s inception in 2001. Blended from vineyard blocks spanning the Estate, the blend is carefully assembled using only barrels that meet our rigorous quality standards. The 2021 vintage exhibits a bright ruby hue with aromas of toasted oak, blackberry, cherry and sassafras. The palate echoes the spicy, dark fruit nose, with notes of bright raspberry and clay. Beautifully balanced between fruit and spice, the 2021 Carneros Estate Pinot Noir finishes with smooth, rich tannins.

Force & Grace Revelist Cabernet Sauvignon

A pinnacle of craftsmanship sourced mainly from renowned Oakville and Rutherford appellations; a cellar-worthy beauty with the depth of flavor, complexity of character, and distinctly polished.

2019 Ratti Marcenasco

The 2019 Ratti Marcenasco is a full, elegant wine with notes of licorice and tobacco. Strong and well-integrated, this Barolo pairs well with fattier meats, like a roast beef, and ripe cheeses.

2020 Allegrini Palazzo della Torre

2020 Allegrini Palazzo della Torre (SRP $25) is a famous ruby red blend that contains beautiful notes of vanilla, black pepper, and cloves. Grown in the Valpolicella region, this red wine has an underlying freshness that exudes a poised and elegant finish. On the palate, the velvety flavors make this an easy to drink wine that would pair nicely with steak sirloin and garlic mashed potatoes.

2021 Argiano ‘NC’

2021 Argiano ‘NC’ (SRP $25) gives a mouthful of savory flavors and notes of black currant and black cherry that compliments the medium tannins. From the producer that made Wine Spectator’s 2023 #1 Wine of the Year, this baby Tuscan is rich in aromas and made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese grapes. A fresh and versatile option to pair wonderfully with a pasta carbonara.

This Pinot Noir is an award-winning wine, for an award-winning partner! The Archery Summit Dundee Hills Pinot Noir was named among one of the best wines in the world at the Decanter World Wine Awards in 2023, offering notes of brambleberry, ripe rainier cherry, blackberry blossoms, cocoa powder, and spice on the nose. The palate is just as lively, with fresh, juicy red fruit backed by graceful tannins and acid. Pairing perfectly with special occasion delicacies such as filet mignon, this is the perfect date night wine.

Force & Grace Paso Robles Cabernet
