NORIA WINES Pinot Noir, Brosseau Vineyard, Chalone AVA
Created Especially to Pair with Delicate Cuisine, Japanese cuisine and fresh ingredients to bring out the lively flavors of the wines.
WHY WE LOVE IT:

- Brosseau Vineyard is 100% organic
- Noria wines are consistent award winners
WINEMAKER: Nori Nakamura; Larsen Family, Artesa, Silenus, Jamieson Ranch, Pine Ridge
WHAT WE TASTED:
Delectable aromas of cherry, and sage as well as attractive bouquets of pomegranate and strawberry, and a hint of jasmine. Dazzling red berry flavor expands on the palate. Supple acidity and refined tannins lift the mid-palate and provide the exquisite mouthfeel with finesse and depth. A nuance of elegant oak notes adds a touch of spiciness and tension to the delightful finish. Sensual and transparent. Pure and elegant. Like all of Noria wines
AVA DESIGNATED: Chalone
WHAT WE PAIRED:
- Grilled Kobe beef, Japanese noodles, sautéed onions, bell pepper and broccoli
- Goat cheese brie and toasted walnuts
- Chocolate Bundt cake
- Truffled rack of lamb
NORIA means water wheel in Spanish, which represents positive elements of life such as water, nature, flow, and energy, even fireworks. Nori and Maria are a darling couple focused 100% on this niche winemaking - fruity, smooth and elegant, like sake. The grapes are brought to Napa and handcrafted in small lots. Nori always chooses single vineyards to bring out pure flavors and sense of place.
