Ripe cherries, strawberries, cranberry and exotic spice aromas and flavors are the dominate characters in the wine. An underlying essence of earthiness and a hint of dried orange peel are displayed in the mid-palate. The texture is silky and carries through the long finish. The herbaceous sage notes and red fruit flavors in our Julia's Vineyard Pinot Noir perfectly complement the umami notes in the wild mushrooms and balance the dairy and baked pastry in these delightful tartlets.

Wine & Spirits

Julia’s is one of two vineyards on the estate property named for the daughters of Barbara Banke and Jess Jackson (the other is Katherine’s). Here, the benchland clay-loam soils soak up what little warmth the valley provides; the vines usually grow fruit with a savory, dark berry expression. This wine is reserved, with elements of both surf and turf, the tobacco note lined with a salty tang. It’s balanced and finely wrought, with a balsamic savor that calls to mind braised duck.
