2012 Pinot Noir
An intensely layered and elegant Pinot Noir that's as brilliantly red as it is deep.
Our 2012 Napa Valley Pinot Noir still wine comes from the Devaux Vineyard in Carneros and is made in a limited quantity.Download Fact Sheet
The Pinot Noir grape is a primary varietal for our sparkling wines, so it’s a natural transition for us to use it for a still wine as well. Our winemaker, Ludovic Dervin, has a special affinity for the grape, having spent time making Pinot Noir before coming to Mumm Napa. This wine is deep and brilliant, exhibiting aromas of black cherries, red plums, and strawberry jam, with a hint of clove spice and toasted oak. Floral tones of violet and lilac highlight the elegant bouquet of this wine. In the mouth, this 2012 vintage is a robust, structured wine. It is dense and layered with big tannins surrounding a crisp and refreshing acid structure. The finish is long, with a nice balance of fruit and spices with cranberry tones, red plums, and fresh cedar wood.Download Fact Sheet
We suggest pairing this Pinot Noir with game birds and dark poultry, wild mushroom risotto, lamb shanks, veal, roasted chicken, pasta dishes in creamy sauces, and soft to medium-hard cheeses like Emmental, Morbier and Manchego.Download Fact Sheet
