2016 Heritage Pinot Noir Tasting Note
Red and black fruited and floral aromatics with notes of red plums, raspberries and candied violets. The palate offers a juicy and fruit-forward entry followed by a round and lively middle full of huckleberries an hints of jasmine and red fruits. The tannins are silky and lingering, adding balance and length to the finish, which is complemented by toasted coconut and vanilla sweetness from the oak treatment. This is a versatile food pairing wine that would make for a delicious complement to grilled salmon, roast chicken or a rack of lamb.
