New Vintage Release - May 2017
Pinot Noir is often referred to as the 'heartbreak grape,’ a nickname that romantically alludes to the delicate and difficult nature of growing this tricky variety. We’ve cut to the chase with the cheekily—and perhaps more accurately—named Sonofabitch Pinot Noir. SOB features lifted aromas of cherry, wood spice and vanilla. It's a dry, medium-bodied Pinot Noir with a supple texture and well-achieved balance of cherry, raspberry and cranberry flavours with hints of cedar and spice.
Pinot is a great choice for salmon, chops & steaks.
The Red Cellar series (Big Mouth, Frank, Bravado, SonofaBitch, Vainglorious) are selected from precise blocks of our vineyards. They are all picked by hand and carefully processed during crush operation in order to extract the best of each variety. These wines are made to reflect the uniqueness of each variety coupled with our own terroir. As such, we extracted and aged them in a way to preserve their own internal varietal characteristics. We carefully monitored the oak aging to keep the balance of the fruitiness of the wine and the varietal character.
