Kukeri Pinot Noirs // Set of 4
Petar Kirilov, founder and winemaker of Kukeri Wines, grew up in Bulgaria, and graduated from the prestigious University of Food Technologies with a master’s degree in winemaking. He has worked at Truchard Vineyards, Meadowcroft Wines and Foyt Wines as a winemaker and created Kukeri Wines to focus on the production of small-lot quality wines from single vineyards.
Kukeri Wines source grapes from some of the most unusual vineyards in Napa Valley and Sonoma County. They treat that fruit as gently as possible, producing small lots of quality wines that display the complexity, power, finesse, and specific terroir of Cabernet Sauvignon grown in Mount Veeder, and Pinot Noir from Petaluma Gap, Los Carneros, and Russian River Valley.
Kukeri refers to a pagan Bulgarian ritual that may date back as far as 8,000 years to the ancient Thracians – and to Dionysus, the god associated with wine, fertility, and rebirth. The festival is replete with mystical symbolism, steeped as it is in a tradition representing the cycle of life, death, and rebirth.
Juicy and delicious, the 2017 Petaluma Gap Pinot Noir is silky in texture and complex in flavor, with black cherry, cranberry and rose petal, fusing perfectly with an exotic undertone of baking spice and toasty vanilla oak. In the glass, dark red hues, darker to the edge, medium weight on the palate with balanced silky mouthfeel and bright acidity. Long persistent finish.
A boutique and elegant wine, the 2017 Kukeri Los Carneros Pinot Noir is silky in texture and complex in flavor, with dark fruit, boysenberry, plum compote, and strawberry, fusing perfectly with an exotic undertone of anise and vanilla oak. In the glass, bright light red hues, darker to the edge, and a silky-smooth tannin create a soft and luxurious mouthfeel from start to finish, balanced well with a bright acidity.
