The Winery SF
2012 North Coast Pinot Noir
California: North Coast
San Francisco Treat
Today’s The Winery SF 2012 North Coast Pinot Noir is a near-perfect coastal Pinot, coming from one of the coolest wineries around. Headquartered on the waterfront in the heart of San Francisco, this is one winery to look out for!
This wine is incredibly well balanced, with a delicate, wonderfully rewarding interplay of fruit, earth, and spice. Bright red fruit notes buttress hints of cedar wood and peppercorn spice to create a wine that is equally delicious and complex. This fantastic Pinot also just took second place overall at the prestigious 2014 Pinot Noir Summit, beating out nearly 500 other wines, including offerings from David Bruce and Kosta Browne.
Pinot lovers - run, don’t walk, for this gem of a wine. At under $25, you’ll be happy you did!
Red ruby at the edge of the glass, with a dark cherry-violet red at its heart.
An aromatic combo of red fruit, earth, and dark spice, with fresh dark cherry and raspberry mingling with sandalwood, freshly fallen leaves, black peppercorn, and clove.
Plenty of bright red fruit notes of raspberry and cherry, paired with a subtle dried plum, on the initial palate. These flavors are rounded out by cedarwood, black peppercorn spice, and a touch of pomegranate black tea.
Long and lingering, with a nice touch of acidity, the finish is highlighted by notes of tart red cherry and subtle pomegranate.
A roast pork loin, seasoned with garlic and rosemary.
