27 Years

As we near the start of our seventh year, we take a moment to reflect back on the thousands of wines that we have showcased, here. When we think of our favorite wineries, those that are first to mind. Ceja is one of those special wineries.

Today, we are so pleased to bring you a complex, delightful Pinot Noir from Ceja. Their 2008 Ceja Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir hails from the wineries Adobe Vineyard.

A little reserved at first, the more this wine is swirled, the more it comes to life. You can also decant for 30 minutes or more to allow it to open up. When the wine does open, it reveals a bold, fresh and very flavorful style of Pinot Noir.

Great with a hearty meal, we’d also recommend this wine be enjoyed in place of cocktails, paired with Charcuterie or mixed cheeses with crackers or a fresh French bread loaf.

For food pairing, we recommend a bacon wrapped pork loin or dark, herb encrusted turkey meat.

Lovers of wonderful Pinot Noir are advised to stock up on this great wine. Salud!

Tasting Profile

Look:

This wine is the color of brilliant strawberry juice, with a slightly opaque core. Ultra-slim tears fall slowly from high up the glass wall, carrying with them the color of the wine.

Smell:

Starts warm and spicy, but settles in with some swirling, revealing delightful aromas of spiced black cherry, roasted plum, espresso, leather, dark wild mushroom, cherry brandy with cinnamon and orange peel. At the very end a hint of forest floor joins in, beautifully rounding out the nose.

Taste:

Pronounced, delicious fruit acids, particularly at the edges of the palate. Firm, integrated tannins provide solid backbone, driving flavors cranberry, smoky cherry, stewed plum with ginger, and red fruit preserves to the far corners of the mouth.

Finish:

Long and flavorful, with pronounced cherry that slowly gives way to an evolving dryness with woodland tannin with Darjeeling tea.
