Very Highly Recommended, today’s single-vineyard 2009 Coleman Nicole Morris Ranch Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is a wine that we encourage you to consider.
Made by longtime Wine Spies Operative favorite winemaker, Jason Moore, this wine is juicy, elegant and uber-delicious. Jason has stunned us with his wines, in the past, breaking sales records and creating many satisfied Operatives. Jason currently makes wines for Coleman Nicole, Modus Operandi, Gentleman Farmer (formerly Poem Cellars), Cielo Malibu Estate Vineyards, RHEO Cellars, and Ashton Lockett Wines. Today makes the first time we have featured a Pinot Noir made by Jason. We wonder why we waited so long!
This wine is bursting with a wonderful compliment of flavors, with an elegant feel and an ultra-long finish that will delight and impress you. Pair this very food-friendly wine with nearly any chicken, fish or pork disk. Be sure to stock up - if you love wonderful Pinot Noir.
Beautiful dark maroon hues, with perfect clarity, a slightly darker heart and pretty pink edging. Swirl the wine and it settles very quickly, leaving behind skinny legs the descend, slowly, from midway up the glass wall.
Fragrant fruit and earthiness abound, with dark cherry, strawberry and raspberry, layering atop dark minerals, damp earth, dried leaves, subtle spice candy and a hint of gunpowder.
Bright, sweet cherry, cranberry, strawberry, raspberry and cassis combine with soft, sweet spice, flint, dusty bramble, gunpowder and subtle dried cherry.
Ultra long and filled with juicy red fruits that very gradually yield to earthy flavors of spice, bramble and minerals. As the fruit fades, a soft dryness spreads from the edges of the palate, inward.
Enjoy this delicious Pinot Noir with a pepper crusted ahi steak or your favorite pork dish in a cherry reduction!
