Jerome Winery | Pinotage
Vintage: 2009. Beautifully rustic and medium bodied. Earth driven notes brace delicious dark berries and ripe plums. Comfortably chewy. Alcohol Content: 12.78%.
Winemaker’s Notes: Americans are in love with Pinot Noir, a fruit that has no patience for Arizona. This South-African cross brings the elegance of Pinot Noir and the heart of Cinsaut allowing this fruit to thrive in Willcox.
Pairings: Tuna Tartare, light to medium red sauces or white chocolate creme brulee
Jerome Winery was John McLoughlin’s first line of handcrafted wines. The wine follows a more traditional way of winemaking, bottled mainly as specific varietal wines. It hearkens back to the family's roots in the business. Family members worked in the vineyard as the first grapevines were planted and harvested by hand. The family photos on the labels honor that tradition of family and independent family businesses.
