Hitch Wines of Edna Valley are a new specialty line full of flavors that will satisfy any wine lover.
Josh Baker, the mastermind behind Hitch, has been crafting wines on California’s Central Coast for nearly twenty years, while continuing to spread his influence through consulting projects in Northern and Southern California as well as Bordeaux, France.
Named for The Hitching Station at Edna Valley vineyard that is the epicenter of activity during the busy harvest season, these wines are complex but accessible, and packed with fruit and dessert flavor elements that make them ideal for a little indulgent sharing. Try these two new entries to the Northern Colorado market:
Hitch Pinot Noir 2018:
Hitch Pinot Noir opens with juicy notes of black cherry, cranberry, and ripe strawberry before melting into savory notes of warm caramel, sassafras, and homemade pie crust. It strikes a fine balance with complex layers of toasty nuances and more fragile notes of fine perfume, violet, and rose water. Its ultra-fine tannins complement its lengthy, pleasing finish. 89 Points, Wine Enthusiast.
Hitch Chardonnay 2018:
Initial aromas of fresh ripe citrus, cut Granny Smith apple, and quince pop from the glass. As the wine opens, its aromas morph to richer notes of dried apricot, pear, and fresh baked pie crust. It finishes with a pleasing balanced acidity. 90 Points, Wine Enthusiast.
April is Pinot Noir Month in Colorado. You can celebrate this universally loved, food friendly style by stopping by or engaging delivery from local, family-owned wine emporiums in your community, like Wyatt’s.
