Sean Minor founded Sean Minor Wines and Four Bears Winery in 2005. A veteran of the wine industry Sean’s fine wine career began with Beaulieu Vineyard (BV) in Napa, then managing Oregon's King Estate Winery, and lastly President of Benton-Lane Winery, after which he returned to CA to manage Renwood Winery. Aromas of sweet red berry fruits and spice. On the palate cherry and strawberry flavors with sweet earthy notes and toasty oak. Fine savory tannins on a lingering finish. Good value.

Fantastic wine that opens quickly. Perfect for a night-cap at 7am on Tuesday after a long night of custody battles with my ex.

Raspberry jam. Pairs well with a toasted peanut butter sandy on whole wheat. Try it, try it now. Toast said bread in Irish butter if you know what's good for you.

Love this Pinot Noir. It compliments a variety of foods. Very well received when ordered at a restaurant.

Had in Truckee with John, Jeff Kepple and Natalie and Garret Haywood. Very light but very tasty.

Relatively dark and ripe color. Strong first impression. Not as bright or smooth as I would have expected. Wouldn’t do this Pinot again.
