Lola Wines Pinot Noir North Coast 2016
Lola Pinot Noir from California, embodies an easy-going, charismatic, full of flavor style which will be ultra tasty at Memorial Day BBQ's, PLUS it's an American wine to honor our veterans on the holiday with friends & family. Aged six months in oak, Lola Pinot has sexy, opulent flavors of ripe cherry, rose petals, chocolate and crème de cassis, and will please everybody in the backyard. Lola conveniently has a screwcap closure which we LOVE, especially outside in the summer when things are fun, casual and unpretentious...perfect with grilled chicken, burgers, hot dogs and more!

Jeb DunnuckAn excellent value, the 2016 North Coast Pinot Noir comes from Mendocino, Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast. It saw a touch of whole cluster, and six months in used barrels. It offers a sweetly fruited, pretty, elegant, classic Pinot Noir style (which isn't a given at this pricepoint) to go with notes of cherries, toast and spice. Drink it over the coming 3-5 years.
