2012 Argus Pinot Noir Napa Valley Carneros
California: Napa Valley: Carneros
Unmistakable Pinot Noir aromas. Cherries, raspberries, mocha, baking spices, forest floor, mushroom, orange rind, stones.
Deep and full of fruit. Dominated by cherries and spice. This is a big Pinot Noir that’s layered with an array of cherries, berries, cinnamon, cocoa, and the lovely more savory elements of great Pinot Noir.
Palate coating. Ripe and long lasting flavors that linger. Toasty. Exotic. Smooth.
Bring on the bird. Chinese duck or a simple roasted chicken are a fabulous combination. Perfection. Shhh, it’s fun to pair with chocolate or a cherry cobbler too! Built to last. Drink now through 2020.
