Winemaker's Notes

Wild Horse 2005 Pinot Noir is lush with aromas of bing cherry, vanilla and earth. On the palate, these essences deepen into dried cherry, cinnamon spice and wild mushroom, and the soft tannins melt into a rich, lingering finish.

A versatile wine, this Pinot Noir complements a wide variety of dishes such as cedarplank grilled salmon, roasted loin of lamb with dried cherry compote and chicken crusted with herbs. The wine is superb now, but is best enjoyed after a few years in the cellar.
