Experience Japanese Style Pinot Noir from NORIA Wines (12 Bottles/Live Experience)


2022 NORIA Pinot Noir (Umino Vineyard) × 4

“Sensai” is a Japanese word for elegant, subtle, nuanced, and detailed. It means the essential balance. Our ultimate goal is to produce the wine that is “sensai”, which is intuitive and touches the heart. Tucked in the Blucher Valley in the Russian River Valley AVA, Umino Vineyard sits on the hill side and enjoys the cool microclimate due to the constant wind and persistent fog. While its Goldridge soil provides excellent drainage. We source Dijon clones 115 & 459 and Pinot Noir from this vineyard is exquisitely pure and sensible.

2022 NORIA Pinot Noir (Sangiacomo Vineyard) × 4

Living away from Japan makes us more appreciative to the Japanese food culture. It is subtle, simple, but also rich, and unique. In order to pair with Japanese foods, which articulate the expression of seasonal and fresh ingredients, the red wine needs to be transparent and nuanced yet carries a structure. We are convinced that Pinot Noir from Sonoma Coast could satisfy our needs. We source three clones (Swan/777/115) from Sangiacomo vineyard in Sonoma Coast. This Pinot Noir expresses length and transparency with Swan and finesse and structure with 777 & 115.

This god given site offers unique Pinot Noir incomparable to any other. We source two clones, Mount Eden and 114, from Brosseau Vineyard, who grows all grapes organically. This Pinot Noir embodies the characteristics of this exceptional terroir that are full of intensity, minerality, and complexity.
