Named for a priest, made in an honorific style that entrances with elegance, and tasting like the Second Coming of Borgogne; Father John offers Pinot Noir’s fabulous hat trick of being stunningly good, highly sought after, and wonderfully difficult to find.
Vigneron Nicholas Moloney will transform your view of Sonoma Pinot Noir. These 3 bottlings represent Anderson Valley’s overarching freshness and vibrancy, Comptche Vineyard’s racy avante garde grace; and the stately rumbling of earth and bramble from Greenwood Ridge.
Sure, we’re happy to share what miniscule allocation we’ve got left. But truly, Father John speaks poetry to every Pinot-phile in our fresh-from-the-holidays office – so you’ve got the heads up before we tell the whole gang.
Philosophically, you can pair this with happy banter amongst friends around a warming bon fire laced with the evening fog and simple pulled pork sandwiches. Nicolas Maloney, owner and winemaker, along with the wines namesake, the late Reverand John Weaver, would prefer a bounty of chatter, happy smiles, and whatever comfort food warms your spirits.
Practically, these classically styled Pinot Noirs marry old world winemaking with modern technology for a fresh, vibrant style that summons savory mushroom cigars, or a bacon and onion pizza. For a truly Mendocino gone Burgundy feast, portobello mushroom sandwiches with soft, melty cheese you can scoop up with barbeque chips.
