Mission Codename Enter the Wulff
Today’s fantastic Lobo Wines 2009 Pinot Noir, Oak Knoll, Napa Valley is a complex, unique and flavor-packed wine from a region that is not normally associated with Pinot Noir. It was this fact that initially drew us to the wine - and are we glad we tried it.
This wine is a wonderful reminder that, under the right care and conditions, a varietal that is not particularly well known, or even ‘well-suited’ to a particular AVA, can actually thrive there.
With bold aromatics that jump from the glass, bold, delicious red fruits telegraph themselves before even taking a sip. Once the wine hits the palate, it bursts with dark red fruit, soft spice and a hint of minerality. Overall, this is a very well-balanced wine that our tasting panel really went wild for.
Copious, extended fruit an elegant finish make it ideal for serving with a roast pork loin or an herbed rotisserie chicken.
Highly recommended, this is a Pinot Noir that you won’t want to miss out on.
