Miller and Lux went from small time New York butchers to the largest cattle owners in California, and one of the largest land holders in the United State in the late 1800’s.
At the height of their partnership, Miller and Lux boasted nearly 1.4 million acres of grazing land and one million head of cattle. They would come to be known as the “Cattle Kings of California”. Fast forward to current day, and much of the Miller and Lux land holdings is now the fertile ground of California’s Central Coast wine country.
Miller and Lux Central Valley Pinot Noir opens with a dark cherry hue and an intriguing floral note. Rich flavors of black cherry and bright strawberry dominate the palate with complex undertones of white pepper and nutmeg. Firm and beautifully integrated tannins round to
a smooth finish.
This versatile, food-friendly wines pairs well with a wide range of foods – experience it with blackened salmon, wine braised short ribs, portabella mushrooms with prosciutto and creamy cheeses like Gorgonzola or Brie.
