2016 Pinot Noir, St. Rita Hills
Quarantine Special, for a limited time!
Fresh cherries and hibiscus dominate the nose and start of the pallet. The mid-pallet is light, but followed by great acidity and enough soft tannin to keep you chewing into the next sip. Classic mild-climate Pinot from California.
Featured on the label is Henry Mesinger. Teddy's great-grandfather, who (along with his brother Fredrick) developed all the original saddles and leather work for: Harley Davidson, Indian, Henderson, Schickle, Emblem and later, bucket seats and wheels for the first Ford automobiles.
His image is meant to symbolize the spirit of adventure.
During his third year in Napa, Teddy started to commute on a motorcycle, to and from the Winery. When he saw this old family picture, he connected immediately to the rush of flying on two wheels over an open road.
Mesingers Wines are meant to always connect people, through stories, and shared interests. Hopefully this sparks some conversation, the next time you find yourself among your gang of wild friends.
