About the wine
While Cabernet Sauvignon may be king in California, Golden State Pinot Noir is ready to upstage Cabernet Sauvignon. A notoriously finicky grape, Pinot Noir’s saving grace is its incredible complexity, and flexibility that allows it to showcase its environment in a single sip.
Checkered Lily’s bottling takes aim at the classic Sonoma style of the grape, hitting the bullseye of Russian River’s signature ripe, berry-scented opulence. North Coast devotees, the magicians behind Checkered Lily are tied to the state’s best vineyard sources, where Pacific breezes meet rolling hills. Devoted to “wines for everyday life,” Checkered Lily’s 2016 bottling is so much more than that--a beautiful collision between nature and mankind, their wines elegant, dense Pinot Noir that shouts “DRINK ME!”

"This is a Pinot favorite.”

"Electric and ethereal this wine pulses with a nervy cherry core that keeps the palate refreshed from beginning to end and glass to glass. The lively nose, expresses black tea and licorice that barely precede the red cherry pie fruit aromas. Notes of forest floor, coffee beans, and cookie crumbs add enticing secondary notes. On the palate, cherry and pomegranate fruit dominate with the same notes on the nose of tea and licorice playing major roles. The feel of this wine is fit and muscular but isn’t showy and has the perfect balance between ripe and bright, making it perfect for brunch, lunch and dinner and everything in between. It’s supple sophistication, refreshing red fruit and bright finish make this Pinot Noir extremely versatile for pairing; try it with one of the classics such as Coq au Vin or Boeuf Bourguignon or with a simple Salmon salad or a juicy Impossible Burger."
