The story! "The vineyards feed the sheep, the sheep feed the vines; lamb feeds the people, people drink the wine and wear wool." This is the Shannon family credo; they take sustainability very, very seriously. Old Pearl is a namesake tribute to their favorite herding dog, and also a Pinot that punches way above its weight.

In your mouth: There are Pinots for everyone: some are light and a bit austere, while others are fuller and more generous. I am of the latter kind. Ripe, dark red fruit effortlessly caresses the tongue. I'm pretty sure you're going to wonder why I'm not pricier. Don't bother... just enjoy me.
