Mark West Wines accepts nothing less than the best, which is why the fruit for the wines is sourced from the finest vineyards throughout California’s appellation. To make the best pinot noir, vintners first gently de-stem and crush the grapes when they come into the winery. Daily punch-downs and pump-overs extract flavor and color. At Mark West, there's nothing more important than sharing a passion for pinot with others. This pinot is the original. It is medium-bodied with black cherry, cola, strawberry, plum, and soft tannins. This red wine pairs well with pastas with light, tomato-based sauces, a juicy cheeseburger, grilled salmon, and roasted pork tenderloin, or on its own.
