Mission Briefing

Codename:

A Thousand Cranes

Today marks our eleventh David Noyes Wines offering. When we find a great winery, we stand by it - and feature its wines again and again.

Today’s David Noyes 2009 Crane Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is a really gorgeous wine with striking hues, bold aromatics and a flavor profile that is delicious and complex.

The finish is intriguing, combining plush tannins with long-lingering spice, black fruit and earthy flavors. Overall, the wine is very elegant.

Decant this delicious wine for best results and you’ll be rewarded with more subtlety of flavor, a softer feel and more defined aromatics.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Gorgeous ruby red at the core, with a fine ring of pink at the meniscus.

Smell:

Alpine strawberry and cherry compote are the first to leap from the glass. Plum, briar patch, kola nut, black currant, darkly toasted vanilla, dark tobacco, sandalwood and black tea leaf.

Taste:

Darker on the palate than the nose initially suggests, with flavors of plum, black cherry, black currant, all balanced by summer alpine forest flavors.

Finish:

Extra long, with very persistent dark fruit flavors that slowly yield to a delicious forest floor and dried thyme character.

Pairing:

Quinoa, beet and arugula salad alongside plank-grilled salmon steaks.
