Full of red fruit and spice, Julia James showcases Pinot Noir’s signature silky texture and food-friendliness. Ripe red raspberry and cherry fruit meld with earth and spice notes lended from a small percentage of Syrah. The acidity is balanced and the fine tannins are ripe, yielding a long, smooth finish. Julia James Pinot Noir is medium in body and meant to be enjoyed on release. The fruit is sourced from vineyards located in northern California’s cool climate regions. Warm sunny days and cool breezy nights provide ideal growing conditions for this varietal.
