Pinot Noir, Sonoma, Sonoma Coast, USA


Clear ruby red color and nose that is brimming with forest floor, raspberry, cut roses, lilacs, and marzipane. Super fresh on the palate with very floral flavors of rose petal and raspberry, plum and strawberry. Finish is very nice and keeps sailing on. This was a fantastic match for a dinner of turkey cutlets “a la provencale” in a fragrant tomato and herb sauce. Great food companion at 13.8% alc. The most remarkable thing about this wine is that is is unbelievably drinkable and just a joy to consume without any heaviness. Has shed some of the heavy spice sensations I noticed 8 months ago when last tasted.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
