The myriad of dark fruit and floral notes in this Pinot Noir come from the cool, windy Los Carneros American Viticultural Area (AVA) in the southern reaches of Napa Valley. Satsuma plum, blackberry, red rose and violet notes weave through the enticing aromas, mingled with warm nuances of vanilla and toasted oak from barrel aging. Silky, elegant flavors echo the aromas, adding blueberry and plum to the rich fruit complexity.
You'll find this wine's lush flavors, bright acidity and fine tannins are perfectly balanced to complement a broad range of foods, from grilled salmon and chicken, to lamb and wild mushrooms.
Velvety touch: rich in flavor: deep red.
Grabbed this bottle from my local Kroger this evening to have with dinner. I figured it would be an average price Pinot Noir for the evening. To my surprise this wine has some nice notes. Smooth tannins, with a long finish. You get cherry and black cherry right off the bat. Followed by some blackberry and smoke. For the price this is a good wine. I would give this wine a 3 out of 5 on the total wine scale but for the price a 4 out of 5.
