Stone Lion Pinot Noir 2018
The Stone Lion Pinot Noir is liquid muscle with powerful minerality and energetic fruit characteristics. We allow certain vineyard blocks to hang on the vine longer to achieve optimal ripeness, which builds a slightly bolder tannin structure complimented with a luscious mouthfeel.

Notes and Pairing Suggestion from Bob Bath, MS:
Pinot Noir can manifest itself in such beautiful ways, but it needs just the right place and careful winemaking to make that happen. Such is the case with the 2018 Stone Lion Pinot Noir, it was that magical combination of the Edna Valley and the winemaking touch of Fred Delivert. There is a remarkable aromatic complexity of perfectly ripe red fruit, licorice, mushroom and roses coming from three different Pinot Noir clones used in making this wine, but it’s the overall balance of acid, fruit and tannin that make the wine a contender for long term aging. Don’t wait for this wine to reach its inevitable peak of perfection in ten years, enjoy it now with this lovely vegetarian ratatouille tart recipe. View Recipe
