Corralillo Pinot Noir is a deep, intense red color, with violet hues. In the nose, it has fresh notes of black cherry, cranberries and characteristic spices of the variety. On the palate, the tannins are soft and elegant, with a vibrant acidity that gives the wine a juicy, long-lasting and persistent finish.
This wine is ideally served with oily fishes such as salmon or bluefish, goat cheese, cured ham, light red meats, pastas and spicy foods.
"The 2010 Pinot Noir Corralillo was aged for 11 months in French oak. Dark ruby in color, it offers up a pleasing perfume of cedar, black cherry, black raspberry, and Asian spices. This leads to a plump Pinot with savory flavors, soft tannins, and lively acidity to balance the fruit. This elegantly styled wine will deliver enjoyment over the next 4-5 years."
