2010 Morris Ranch Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir •Morris Ranch
California: Sonoma County: Sonoma Coast
We love wineries big and small, but it is sometimes the smallest of producers that craft some of our very favorite wines. Today’s Coleman Nicole 2010 Morris Ranch Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is a juicy, complex wine that is the stellar follow-up to the 2009 vintage that our Operatives went crazy for in late 2013.
Enjoy this single vineyard Pinot Noir (clone 777) with everything from an appetizer course to a full on holiday feast. The bright fruits and subtle earthiness make this wine a very flexible pairing companion.
You’ll love this wine. We spy promise!
Even ruby red hues with perfectly even coloration from core to edge.
Perfumed aromas of cherry, Alpine strawberry, red plum skin and subtle rhubarb meld with hints of earthy dried mushroom and flint.
A burst of wild cherry, raspberry, cranberry and cassis leads the charge, followed by subtle dried leaves and a hint of subtle graphite.
Lush and mouth coating at first, then cherry and raspberry linger for a long time before a slight dryness spreads from the front of the palate to the rear.
Enjoy this very food-friendly wine with a range of dining choices. We’ll be enjoying ours with a wild mushroom risotto with asparagus and shaved parmesan.
