Introducing Best of Class, Double Gold Medal, 98 Points 

2019 Ektimo Estate Mt. Eden Clone Pinot Noir

Hot off the press, the results of the Press Democrat North Coast Wine Challenge results are in,  Best of Class Winner 2019 Ektimo Estate Mt. Eden Clone Pinot Noir.  The Mt. Eden is a heritage clone rumored to have its origins from the famed Romanee Conti vineyards in France, the judges agree it does pretty well here too.  Just imagine how magnificent this wine will be when it matures to perfection!

The 2019 Estate "Mount Eden Clone" Pinot Noir is a more robust take on Pinot Noir, lithe and luscious yet with more body and substance, focused and precise.  It rewards the more sophisticated palate with a veritable feast for the senses that will tantalize your palate and capture your imagination.

Deeper in color, richer in aroma and more concentrated on the palate, Crimson Passion Cherry, pomegranate and Thundercloud Plum flecked with savory notes and supple tannins as smooth as satin sheets.  Simple yet creative food pairing possibilities abound like "Chicken Pinot Noir with Wild Mushrooms and Fresh Basil" or maybe the "Perfect Burrata and Prosciutto Crostini Appetizer".

Recognition of excellence was not just limited to the one wine.  We are proud to share that we did quite well with our entries, so here are our top results;

Featured Wines

We are excited to announce the return of our curated, unique tableside Barrel Tasting (by appointment) with the timely release of a wine that is taking everyone by surprize.  When the wine is revealed as a 2021 Lodi Zinfandel, everyones assumption is that this will be a big, powerful, jammy and intense wine as is often the case.  Our Lodi Zinfandel gracefully sidesteps those preconceptions, and delivers stunning flavor profile remniscent of the most brillian red gem you can imagine.

A dazzling array of red fruit character explodes on the palate, Perfection redcurrant, Marasca cherry, Pink Pearl apple, ripe cranberry and raspberry with the barest hint of juniper berry, a delicate touch of Vietnamese black pepper and a smooth lingering finish of keemun tea.  Ripe, rambunctious and ready to go, this is a wine to be enjoyed early and often, and again, and again, and again.

We are planning to bottle 70 cases in early December and hope to have it in your hands before Christmas.  It will be the perfect wine to toast and wave goodbye to 2022 and welcome 2023.  Retail price for this zazzy zinfandel is only $30, it only sells by the case but for the vote of confidence you get 50% off the retail price!!  Buy the case and the price is just $15 per bottle (plus tax and shipping where applicable).  As of this writing, 35 cases already sold and going fast.

This Zinfandel will again come with the customized label, so you can include your name and even a brief message if you wish.  100% unique, 100% delectable, and 100% fun.  Is one case really enough?  Get yours while supplies last, you will be so glad you did!  Order directly by reply, email jorth@ektimowines.com and reserve yours now.
