California: Sonoma County: Sonoma Coast
Look at the results
This wine hails from a very unique vineyard. At 900 feet of elevation five miles from the Pacific Ocean, this wine grows in perfect Pinot growing conditions. The result is a lovely and lively Burgundian style Pinot Noir that we offer up with our strong recommendation.
We’ve always loved Ken Churchill’s wines and today’s delicious 2009 Left Edge Vineyard Pinot Noir continues this tradition. This wine is flavorful, elegant, bright and very food friendly.
Drinking just beautifully, now, we can’t wait to try this wine again and again over the next few years. If you enjoy great Pinot Noir, this is the perfect wine to stock up on as it should continue to progress for the next year or two.
Dark cherry juice hues with even concentration of color, from the heart of the wine out to its ruby red edges.
Bright red cherry, ripe strawberry, bramble, raspberry juice and dried fall leaves give the wine a complex overall nose. Underneath all of these, touches of dried leather and rhubarb really round out the nose.
Bright and beautiful with high, juicy notes of red cherry, raspberry, young strawberry, cranberry and red rose petals. As the wine breathes, it also reveals subtle envelope of cedar.
Very long with most of the fruits tailing off in equal proportion. Cranberry and fresh rhubarb persist the longest.
This bright, Burgindian style wine would work wonderfully with a roasted chicken rubbed with herbs de Provence.
