Weather Pinot Noir is made from the finest, sustainably farmed grapes of the Russian River Valley. Balanced, and worthy of saving or savoring now, this limited production Pinot is made to pair perfectly with food and friends.
With the help of two deeply-rooted winemaking families, winemakers Jack O’Neill & Cary Pierce (acoustic duo Jackopierce) are proud to present Weather. The name, a song title from their T Bone Burnett produced debut album, depicts a man who brings much needed rain with him when he returns home from an arduous journey. This speaks to the necessity of the perfect weather conditions required to make this balanced wine, and also parallels Jack and Cary's storied 25 year career on the road.
Weather delivers delicious hints of ripe red fruit, caramel and cola that contrast perfectly with the warm, round undertones of its earthy tannins.
Here’s what www.LastBottleWines.com (one of Food & Wine’s Top 10 online wine sites) had to say about Weather:
""WOW! What a score!! If you buy one Pinot Noir this year - BUY THIS ONE. Russian River Pinot at a price like this comes around but once or twice in a lifetime! We were all slack-jawed after tasting this…Russian River, of course, is pinot paradise, and this small-production wine has a cool story to boot. A flat-out delicious, complex creation, it glides over your palate with rich texture, cola nut, cherries and pomegranate, with a tasty touch of toffee and French oak spice. Dangerously drinkable pinot… Don’t miss!”
