A bright, lively, approachable Pinot Noir, today’s Healdsburg Ranches 2011 Appellation Series Russian River Pinot Noir delivers a very full drinking experience. Delicious, elegant and very food friendly, this Pinot Noir can be enjoyed all on its own, or with a wide variety of foods.
Impressive, especially at the wine’s regular price, this offering is an incredible value today. This Pinot Noir is silky and very smooth, with flavors that cover the entire palate, leaving no corner of the mouth untouched by the wine’s delicious flavors.
If you love great Pinot Noir, and you crave a great deal, this wine will surely satisfy!
A dark ruby core fades to fine pink edges. After swirling, the wine settles quickly in the glass.
Dark and brooding with dried cherry, dried cranberry, dried leather, raisin, dried dark rose petal, and young alpine strawberry.
Silky and juicy, with broad flavors of Bing cherry, pomegranate, dried unsweetened strawberry, bittersweet baker’s chocolate, and a hint of tobacco leaf.
Very broad, with flavors that coat the palate. Bold tannin drives flavors to the far corners of the mouth and a very gradual dryness settles in.
Easy to pair, we’d recommend this wine with a pork tenderloin drizzled with a red wine sauce with currants.
