The Pinot Noir is deep, dark purple in color with abundant red fruit and dark berry aromas and flavors. The ever-present underlying earthy character compliments its solid tannin structure and long fruity finish. Try our Benchbreak Pinot Noir with mushrooms, roasted tomatoes, truf es, let mignon, and seared ahi. It also pairs well with cheeses such as Gruyere and Fontina.

Wine EnthusiastConcentrated raspberry fruit meets with earthy rhubarb, cranberry, beet, orange rind and thyme herbs on the nose of this new project from the Jackson family. Tighter pomegranate and raspberry fruit show on the palate, alongside graphite and woody herbs. It's a reliably down-the-middle and fresh wine.

Wine AdvocateSpice, peppery herbs, leather and darker currant and cherry fruits all emerge from the 2013 Pinot Noir Bench Break (aged eight months in 27% new French oak), and it has medium-bodied richness and firm tannin. Drink it over the coming 3-4 years.
