Friday Wine Tasting… Edna Valley Pinot Noir

Wine of the Week
Edna Valley Pinot Noir

For all of the Pinot fans out there this is one you will want to try.  I received this bottle as a gift for my birthday a few months back and was saving it to enjoy at the perfect moment.  With our schedules lately finding time to sit down, relax and really enjoy a glass of wine without interruption has been a rare occasion.  So on the perfect summer night, computer shut down, husband home from Boston, we found one of those moments and both agree this is a yummy Pinot!

winemaker’s notes:
Fragrant, floral and redolent with black-cherry fruit, the Pinot Noir exhibits the delicacy and allure of this captivating varietal. Hints of rose petal, caramel and forest floor weave through the jammy fruit core. The mid-palate is pleasant and smooth with fine tannins. Subtle cola and perfume nuances alight the finish for lingering enjoyment of this pretty red wine. Enjoy with gamey flavors such as duck, venison or wild mushroom pasta.
