Tasting Notes: Janus is the first label that Jimi produced when he founded Brooks in 1998. Jimi’s passion and interests of mythology and astrology often were shown through the creation of his first wines. In Roman mythology, Janus is the god for new beginnings, as well as endings, the future, the past and doorways. Janus is the god of balance and the ultimate expression of Pinot Noir!

The Janus is the richest, most vibrant and intense blend that Brooks produces. This is a an expressive and beautifully elegant Pinot Noir dominated with bright red fruit notes of red currants, pomegranate, bing cherry and freeze-dried strawberries. Pair with herb roasted pork tenderloin, garlic potato puree, charred broccolini & cherry-pinot demi sauce!!
