This Sonoma Pinot Noir is drinking very nicely now, as a four year old. Showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel. Fruit forward with nice earth notes, and resembles a mix of New and Old World Pinot Noir.
Not what I expected from the color, as it is bolder than I thought it would be (which I liked).
Good after 15 minutes of airtime, and I preferred it a little bit chilled.
Good by itself or with food. I paired it with a double cream brie cheese.
Grapes are grown at 2400 feet elevation in the Sonoma Mountain region.
