Rembrandt Pinot Noir: Wins Awards Three Years in A Row
Pinot Noir is a black wine grape variety of the species Vitis vinifera. The name is derived from the French words for "pine" and"black" alluding to the grape variety's tightly clustered dark purple pine cone-shaped bunches of fruit. Our style of Pinot was cultivated similar to the origins of Burgundy Noir which is the original French version of this varietal, thus the results are a darker intense flavor.

The results are rich and complex to the palate, and we feel has truly captured what can be describes as an award winning Pinot.
