18 House Mountain Pinot Noir
100% Pinot Noir
We have been chasing the holy “Pinot” grail for many years now. Pinot’s homeland of Burgundy, France is cooler than many of our growing regions so we have sought out cool microclimates to grow this fickle grape in. Since our doors opened in 2004, we have bottled only a few Pinot Noirs from Arizona. As this young block at House Mountain matures, we are seeing more consistently great fruit from it and we are learning to work with its eccentricities. This classic, old-world pinot avoids heaviness from high alcohol and has a unique texture and freshness that only Pinot can showcase. Serve at cellar temperature and enjoy by itself or with modestly seasoned chicken or pork.
