Different name, different people. Dan Schaaf, who thinks wine should be affordable and approachable yet not cheap or ordinary, and Aaron Olson, who thinks wines should taste good, smell good and feel good, are the two "punx" behind this label.
A Pinot Noir is offered from Elk Prairie Vineyard in Humboldt County. The wines are sold through the website store.
Articles About Deux Punx
2011 Deux Punx Elk Prairie Vineyard Humboldt County Pinot Noir
12.8% alc., $36. Harvested at 21º Brix. Native fermentation, aged in neutral French oak barrels. · Moderate reddish-purple color in the glass. Very aromatic with bright, clean aromas of fresh red cherries and berries, some rose petal, and a touch of forest floor and bark. Middleweight flavors of black cherries with an interesting, even intriguing, undercurrent of wood plank grilled fruit and veggies. Different, but it works. The wine has impressive length on the finish that sails along. Very smooth in the mouth and beautifully crafted. The tree on the label is appropriate. Still impressive the following day from a previously opened and recorked bottle. Score: 90. Reviewed September 5, 2013 ARTICLE »
