“Bright medium red Lovely violet lift to the subdued aromas of black cherry and minerals Sweeter and richer than the Echézeaux, but still restrained in the middle palate, offering notes of spicy red berries, flowers and minerals The above wine is more accessible today, but this wine impresses with its explosive, mounting peacock’s tail of a finish, which stains the finish and lingers without any loss of energy This wine is built for a graceful evolution in the bottle but it’s also amazingly showy today.” – Vinous, 95 points.
This elusive and delicate light-bodied grape is a winegrowers dream, but can be difficult to achieve. Stubborn, yet flirtatious, Pinot Noir is tantalizing creating a beautiful dance between the grape and the winemaker. The resulting light red wine can be nothing short of spectacular. Loved for its red fruit and spicy characteristics, its also a great food partner.
Look for notable regions including Burgundy, France, Central Coast or Sonoma in CA, Willamette Valley in Oregon, and Pfalz or Baden in Germany as well as many other regions around the world in New Zealand, Australia, Chile, and Argentina.
