2010 Central Coast Pinot Noir
California: Central Coast
The Wine Spies are so fortunate to enjoy such a close and special relationship with today’s winery. We are proud to report that we are the only wine merchant to have today’s very special, soon-to-be-released, LaZarre Pinot Noir.
I first came to know Adam LaZarre, winemaker for today’s spectacular Pinot Noir, nearly six years ago. If you ever meet me in person, ask me for the story of our meeting!
Today’s 2010 LaZarre Central Coast Pinot Noir is everything that we’ve come to expect from a LaZarre wine. It is delicious, balanced, elegant and packed with authentic flavors. Flavorful enough to be enjoyed on its own, but with enough acidity to make it an extraordinary fine-dining companion, this all-purpose wine will certainly find a home on many an Operative’s Thanksgiving table, this year.
Order this rare treat of a wine now, in time for pre-Thanksgiving delivery!
With heart of pure garnet, color is evenly concentrated from heart to edge. Swirl the wine, and short, skinny, wine-stained sears fall slowly from high up on the glass wall.
Deep and lush with wonderful fruit and spice, lead by cherry, wild strawberry, red currant, sweet brown spice and dusty bramble. As the wine opens, it reveals black tea leaf, wild strawberry, sweet cigar box, toasty vanilla and flint appear.
Red cherry, red currant, wild strawberry and dusty bramble take the lead. As the wine breathes, it opens to reveal juicy raspberry, black tea leaf, dried cranberry, subtle and soft brown spice.
Elegant and very long, with clean, sweet and tart fruit that slowly fades, giving way to earthy spice, black tea and the finest hint of subtle white pepper.
