LHW: "We love Pinot Noir as it a highly versatile food wine! The best Pinot Noir is made from a blend of many clones to get layered complexity in the wine. We cofermented clones 115 with 828 and 667 with 777 to give balanced blending components resulting in a wine with excellent fruit, tannins and acidity.
This Pinot Noir is an opaque violet and ruby color; intense aromas of smoke, earth, boysenberry, black and red cherry, currants, raspberry, allspice; flavors integrated with soft tannins matching the aromas adding blue berry with a long tart finish of strawberry and red cherry.
Leon recommends serving this wine with sage rubbed turkey, duck burgers, braised lamb, and Osso Bucco. It is ready to drink now but will improve with bottle age for the next 3 to 5 years.
