2013 Sonoma County Pinot Noir
California: Sonoma County
Today’s Sonoma Oaks 2013 Sonoma County Pinot Noir is an elegant Pinot crafted by our dear friends at Balletto Vineyards.
Balletto is well known for their outstanding wines, especially their out-of-this-world Pinots. Today’s offering from the Russian River Valley more than meets these lofty standards. With a touch of structure paired with elegant and nuanced red fruit flavors, today’s wine is deliciously complex. The exclamation point on today’s wine? It’s only $19.99!
Please enjoy our boldest recommendation on today’s fantastic, wallet friendly Pinot.
A beautiful, glimmering ruby, with swirls of dark crimson and scarlet meeting in the center of the glass.
Very soft, almost ethereal aromatics slowly emerge in today’s Pinot. Bright raspberry and Santa Rosa plum are joined by dry summer earth, sweet tobacco leaf, red currant, dried cranberry, and a splash of peppercorn spice.
Beautifully elegant, with a fine balance of refined earth, spice, and fruit. A fruity core of black raspberry, wild strawberry, and dried cranberry is framed against clove, black herbal tea, sweet tobacco, and soft dried earth.
A touch of structure in the finish really elevates today’s wine. The flavors linger, with a bit of pomegranate staying with you until the end.
Grilled turkey breast, served with caramelized onions, freshly cracked black peppercorn, and apple cider vinegar.
