The 2014 Head High Pinot Noir is comprised of several prime vineyards located in Sonoma that include Durell, Wildcat Canyon, Sangiacomo, Vella, and El Novillero. Made by longtime industry vet Sam Spencer, who partnered with Bill Price of Price Family Vineyards, Head High is a true surf-inspired wine brand. Both Sam and Bill share a love for the outdoors, specifically surfing, which is where Head High derives its name. It is a term that refers to the waves being the same height as the riders. It’s through this unique connection of surf and wine that Head High crafts their pinot noir with the most sustainable farming practices. They believe that through wine they can not only bring joy to people’s lives but also promote environmental awareness.
I know that’s a great story but can the wine deliver you ask? Answer = ABSOLUTELY! The 2014 Head High pinot noir is gorgeous in the glass exemplified by its deep RUBY RED (like Dorothy’s slippers) hue. The bouquet is also amazing with bright CHERRY COLA and fresh MILK CHOCOLATE aromas, like when unwrapping a Hershey’s Bar! With oodles of RIPE BLACKBERRY and RICH RED RASPBERRY flavors combined with BRIGHT ACIDITY make the Head High Pinot Noir simply RAVISHING. Pair it with Wild Mushroom and Burrata Bruschetta as an appetizer or Roasted Duck with Fig reduction for a main. That’s what I call a perfect combination!

Winery Tasting Notes: “This wine is characterized by grace, depth, flavor intensity, and balance. After a four-day cold soak, the individual vineyard-lots were blended early to present a true picture of the breadth of Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. After a day spent exploring the world, a glass of Head High Pinot Noir feels like home.”
