ESSER FAMILY PINOT NOIR 2017 - Straits Wine
 

ESSER FAMILY PINOT NOIR 2017

Wine Region: California, USA

Grape: Pinot Noir

Tasting Note

Light garnet colour. Aromas of milk chocolate, smoked honey, cranberry muffin, and sun dried tomato with a satiny, vibrant, dryish light-to-medium body and an effortless, engaging, medium-long caramel-laden nuts, beets in vinaigrette, savory herbs, and crystallised orange peel finish with moderate oak flavor. A spicy, zesty Pinot Noir with a sultry, smoky edge.

About the Winery

Esser literally means "eater" in German. This could be the underlying reason why the Esser family chose to make wine to accompany food. On arrival to the U.S., not speaking a word of English, the two lived in Evanston, Illinois and remained there for 12 years before moving to the Napa Valley. Manfred became the president and partner of Cuvaison winery for 12 years before he moved on to consult world-wide for various companies. In 2002, Manfred finally decided to make his dream come true by creating his own wine with the intention to exceed ones expectations.
