Shaky Bridge Pioneer Series wines are crafted to deliver a high quality entry point to the distinctive style of our wines. A ‘younger sister’ brand to our top tier Shaky Bridge Artisan Series, our Pioneer Series wines offer excellent grape typicity, flavor and value for money in each wine. We don’t believe in compromising on quality at any pricing tier.
Winemakers Tasting Notes
The first thing that gets you is the color. Dark. Inky. Opaque. The wine sits heavy in the glass. You know there’s an experience about to happen. The aromas are full of cocoa, blackberry, blueberry and smoky, vanilla laden oak. The weight on the tongue is impressive; the ripe fruit engulfs your palate with a richness you’d expect from a much more expensive wine. The finish is seductive; long; perfectly complete. You want for more. Oh how we loved our 2012 Pioneer Series Pinot Noir. Oh how wonderfully happy we are to welcome our 2013 of the same name. So good to have you here my friend!
