This month’s label was inspired by a conversation with a customer about Nefarious Cellars. Now, I get really excited about great wine, great wine making and great wine stories, and this label delivers on all of the above.
2002 Nonni and Zing Willamette Valley Pinot Noir according to their website:
…we started a label called Nonni and Zing. It was a small project of about 250 cases annually and was made entirely from fruit sourced from the Dundee Hills AVA. That was a good time.
The label features a jester with bright red pompoms on his top. The Nefarious jester can still be found in the background of the Nefarious wine labels today. My favorite part is the red and white polka dot foil. I also love how each wine is individually numbered by hand. Mine is 659 of 1680. Since I’ll never open it as a part of my collection, here are some tasting notes from someone else’s experience.
This is an historical piece, no longer available or produced. I feel so lucky to have come across this bottle when Nefarious first opened in 2005. Back then they were just a chick, a guy, and a dog. Things have gone very well for the Neff’s and I am excited to have them in my own backyard.
