THE REVIEW

The 2006 Knight Valley Pinot Noir is one of the best kept secrets in California! This fantastic wine is essentially declassified juice from one of the most highly regarded wineries on the West Coast, and specifically, one of the most sought after, well respected producers in all of California.
    This cult sibling contains the same tremendous fruit and is crafted by the same winemaker and aged in the same French oak barrels. This delicious wine is a tremendous value and again, one of the best kept secrets.
    The 2006 Knights Valley Pinot Noir offers exceptional depth and drinks well beyond its price point. It is rich and intense (classic Pisoni character) with dark berry fruit and underlying earthiness. Pisoni fruit is the source for many 'cult' California Pinots and often referred to as the Grand Cru of California. It is dense, wildly exotic and pairs wonderfully with not only lighter fare, but can easily stand up to steak and grilled food. Enjoy! Read More »
