Gold Medal Winner: 2014 Los Angeles International Wine Competition
Ventana's 2012 Pinot Noir has an explosion of vibrant wild cherry, raspberry and cranberry flavors with a delicious hint of cedar. Ten months of aging rounds out the flavor complexities with a touch of smokiness and vanilla. The wine is medium bodied with a bright berry red color. The food friendly Pinot Noir is a pleasing accompaniment to almost any entree from almond encrusted salmon to duck in cherry reduction sauce. It is fabulous now or cellar up to eight years.
