Cherry aromas are layered in this deeply-colored Pinot Noir, and secondary notes of mint and forest floor can be found in the nose as well. Fresh red currant flavors are concentrated on the palate, and well-balanced by a nice earthiness and mild spice reminiscent of coriander and sandalwood. Full-bodied for a Pinot Noir but matched with a mouthwatering acidity, this style of red wine is unusually versatile. Velvety tannins stretch out the long finish with a trace of red ripe fruit as the final flavors linger.
Sourced from two eastern Carneros vineyards and one vineyard in the cool Southern area of Napa Valley, this Pinot Noir is expertly blended with a small amount of Monterey Pinot as well, which contributes to the multi-faceted layers in this wine. Pair this wine with grilled pork chops, an artisanal margherita pizza, or a teriyaki mushroom burger to enjoy the nuanced flavors to their fullest.
