Storrs Winery’s 2017 Pinot Noir is a ‘Killer’ Halloween Choice

Plus, Bargetto Winery’s Regan Vineyards is an up-and-comer from the Santa Cruz Mountains

The Storrs Winery Quarry in Corralitos is a tranquil setting to enjoy 2017 Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir.

How about a blood-red Pinot for Halloween!

Storrs Winery’s 2017 Pinot Noir ($36) is inky-dark, bold and guarantees you a howling good time over Halloween. 

“Due to its aging in small French oak cooperage and long-term bottle aging, you will find this wine soft and supple with lovely notes of vanilla,” winemakers Pamela and Stephen Storrs say. “And the notes are earthy with vibrant aromas of raspberry, strawberry and cherry.” 

This husband-wife duo has produced a Pinot Noir that’s beautiful and, at the same time, ideal wine to crack open when ghouls and goblins are hovering on your doorstep.

Storrs Winery is participating in the Fall Vintners’ Festival (see below), or visit them at their two tasting rooms.
