2019 Pinot Noir - Norman Shield
The 2019 Norman Shield Pinot Noir hails from the cool climate of the Russian River Valley. This prestigious area is renowned for this grape varietal and has many passionate growers and producers. The 2019 Norman Shield Pinot Noir is very aromatic, with a silky mouthfeel, and has a fruit character that is ripe and intense.
From the beginning of Roman history, soldiers used two basic types of shields: the great scutum, in either its oval or rectangular form, and the round bronze clypeus. It was not until the 12th century that Europe was to see a new type of kite-shaped shield that became known as the Norman style.
Since arms were originally painted on shields, it is now a basic part of any coat of arms. Our Norman Shield represents friendship, justice and learning. While friends can have a profound impact on our experiences in life, this wine aspires to develop brotherhood – a deeper and more enduring type of friendship found only in the bond of the battlefield and a full goblet of wine post victory.
