Pinot Noir

This elusive and delicate light-bodied grape is a winegrowers dream, but can be difficult to achieve. Stubborn, yet flirtatious, Pinot Noir is tantalizing creating a beautiful dance between the grape and the winemaker. The resulting light red wine can be nothing short of spectacular. Loved for its red fruit and spicy characteristics, its also a great food partner.

Look for notable regions including Burgundy, France, Central Coast or Sonoma in CA, Willamette Valley in Oregon, and Pfalz or Baden in Germany as well as many other regions around the world in New Zealand, Australia, Chile, and Argentina.

Napa Valley, California

Napa Valley, where Cabernet Sauvignon is “King.”  The valley itself in Northern California is not very big, but it is home to some of the most expensive and prestigious vineyards in California. Napa is separated from Sonoma and Central Coast by two sets mountain ranges: the Mayacamas Mountains to the west and the Vaca Mountains to the east. Being in a valley, this region can heat up pretty quickly. However, there are cooling influences like fog and ocean breezes from the San Pablo Bay that help to moderate the temperature within the valley. With more heat comes more concentrated, fuller-bodied wines, making this the perfect place for Cabernet Sauvignon. Other primary red grapes of focus are Zinfandel, Merlot, Syrah, and Cabernet Franc. The principal white varieties to look for here are Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. You may also find Pinot Noir in the more southerly area of Los Carneros AVA where it can get cool enough to produce high-quality Pinot Noir. Featured AVA’s include Howell Mountain, Calistoga, St. Helena, Mount Veeder, Los Carneros, Stags Leap District, Oakville, and Rutherford. 

Mirror Wine Company was started by Rick Mirer and Kirk Venge.

Rick Mirer was born and raised in Indiana, making him fit for the Irish from the start! It was after his successful career in football at Notre Dame and the second half of his NFL career with the 49ers and Raiders that he found his second career in his next passion – wine. In 2008 Mirror Napa Valley was born and over the past 10 years the focus has always been quality and integrity of “mirroring” the terroir to the wine in the bottle.

Kirk Venge was born to be a Napa Valley winemaker. Born and raised in Rutherford, Ca. Kirk was instilled with his father’s vision of excellence at a very young age. He learned the rhythm of winemaking working in the family vineyard alongside his father, Nils Venge. Rick and Kirk are two powerful reflections of the same dedication to craft and belief that all great wines mirror a meticulously farmed vineyard situated within the finest terroir.
