The second release in our Grower Series, this unique wine celebrates the Molnar family and Poseidon Vineyard, a trusted source of premium grapes since Mumm Napa's earliest days. This vintage is notable for withstanding the earthquake that shook the Napa Valley in August 2014, from an epicenter less than a mile from Poseidon's rich, maritime soils.
Rich and bold, with a nice touch of spices, this wine is a great expression of sparkling Pinot Noir at its best. The mouthfeel is juicy, round and oily, with a nice balance of fresh and ripe fruit notes, dominated by red berry flavors, with some stone fruit and pepin fruit notes like apricot, Anjou pear and red delicious apple. The mid palate is layered with a bright acid balance and a rich and complex finish, with notes of bread toast, hazelnut, cranberry juice and a soft blond caramel sweetness.
This second vintage release of our Grower series highlights the long-term partnership with one of our original Grape Grower, the Molnar family. This wine is a single vineyard from the cool growing region of southern Carneros, called Poseidon ranch. This release highlights the richness and complexity of Carneros Napa Pinot Noir grapes, with an ultimate attention to details with the grape farming.
We suggest pairing it with flame grilled steak, fried tempura mushrooms, shrimp spring rolls, or even a simple fresh Waldorf salad.
