Geza’s Selection Pinot Noir

Geza’s Selection Pinot Noir bottle

The Vinicultural Society explores clonal selections, varietals and the incredible terroir of Sonoma County. Named for the Count's eldest son who fought in the Civil War, Geza's Selection Pinot Noir is harvested from two vineyards in the Sonoma Valley that complement each other beautifully.

A rich depth of flavor is at the heart of this wine, a mix of blueberry, blackberry and cherry that shows a generosity on the nose and palate. Bright acidity lifts the deeper, darker notes of toasted oak and cola. —V.B.
  • Winemaking

    Sloping hills, rocky clay loam soils and low-vigor vines help keep yields low while the myriad of clones (777, 5, 115) ensures greater complexity in the wines. Our 2012 Geza’s Selection Pinot Noir was fermented in small, one-ton open top fermenters with hand punchdowns before being aged for 15 months in 100% French oak, 15% new.

  • Palate

    It is a rich, ripe wine with soft berry flavors and a bright fruit finish that makes it the perfect pairing for garlic and herb roasted pork tenderloin or oven-baked salmon fillets.
