2022"Cohort 2"

Pinot Noir, 2022

Varietal: 100% Pinot Noir 

Appellation: Russian River Valley, Sonoma, CA

Progressive Scale Weight: 3R

Pairings: Pair it with absolutely everything from salmon, pork, and duck (with a cherry sauce - yes, please!) to stooping it with friends on Halloween.

With another year of winemaking under our belt, we truly crafted the Pinot Noir of our Russian River dreams with the 2022 Cohort 2 vintage. The bright garnet color of the wine is so engaging, and the expressive nose draws you in with bright raspberry, wild strawberry and fresh tea leaf undertones. On the palate, this wine is just plain yummy.

The wine weighs in at a 3R on the Progressive Scale, meaning it has a little roundness thanks to 10 months of aging in French Oak. Beautiful acid from front to back makes this a fantastic food pairing wine. This year's Pinot Noir is youthful, carefree and absolutely delicious. 

Some Quick Info About

PWC's Core Tenets

PWC is not made from bulk juice.

No leftover juice or shiner bottles here - we've been working with this wine since it was grapes on a vine! We work with growers like Juan Gamino, a first generation Mexican-American grower in the Russian River Valley of Sonoma. Over time, our entire grape portfolio will be as intentional as our wine.

PWC is a new way to think about wine.

Learning about wine is intimidating. To make it easier, we developed the Progressive Scale - a way of categorizing wine by its body instead of varietal or region. Our current vintage represents lighter-bodied wines, and future vintages will include fuller-bodied wines like Cabernet and Chardonnay.

PWC pays it forward.

$1 of every bottle or piece of merchandise sold goes to support learning opportunities for the Urban Grape Wine Studies Award for Students of Color participants. When you support PWC, you're supporting equity and inclusion in the wine industry. Learn about our Program!

PWC is a vehicle for industry learning.

For ten weeks each year, the Urban Grape Wine Studies Award for Students of Color interns work a full harvest season in Sonoma to learn the ins and outs of winemaking. The sales from their cohort's wine will allow the next season's interns to have the same experience. Each vintage is named after the cohort that helped to make it. We're changing the wine world one vintage at a time!

At PWC, everyone is a wine drinker.

Progressive Wine Company is for EVERYONE. Let's face it, the wine world doesn't need another brand. What it needs is a new way to think about wine.This is the only way we'll encourage future generations to stay connected with the industry. PWC is here to build a bigger table - and set a wine glass at each place setting.
