2012 Coastal Passage Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir is one of those grapes that can only be grown in very small climate pockets around the world. Unlike Cabernet and Syrah, that can grow in more broad areas, Pinot produces unique flavor profiles based on region and California is one of the greats. You get intense fruit medium body out of these specific growing regions. The result is Coastal Passage Pinot Noir, a very expressive wine aromatically with lychee, cranberry, cola, raspberry, and red cherries abounding with hints of cinnamon and clove, wildflowers and cacao. This wine has a bright, food-friendly profile. The perfect companion to any foods with spice.
