Keller Estate’s Casa de la Cruz wines are produced from the family’s well recognized La Cruz Vineyard in the Petaluma Gap region of the Sonoma Coast. ‘Casa’ translates to ‘House’ in Spanish, making these wines the house wines of La Cruz Vineyard - wines of great quality and exceptional value. As part of the family’s exploration of La Cruz Vineyard, each year a sampling from the entire property is harvested together, and these resulting wines are a true reflection of the vineyard’s terrior. Keller Estate’s 2009 Casa de la Cruz Pinot Noir opens with flavors of bright raspberry, cherry, and Santa Rosa plum, while layers of earth, spice, and roasted herbs give the wine depth on the expressive palate. The finish is long and savory. Try pairing the Keller Estate 2009 Casa de la Cruz Pinot Noir with barbecued chicken, veal, or mushroom risotto. [+]
