Mission Codename The Elegant Beast
Today’s Barbed Oak Vineyards 2012 Zara’s Block Estate Grown Pinot Noir is quite the treat: a dark, deeply flavorful Pinot that also has a delightfully elegant side to it.
Today’s wine was crafted from a pristine vineyard in the Bennett Valley that is perfect for growing Pinot: warm, sunny days are followed by cool, coastal foggy evenings. The quality of the fruit has led many higher priced labels to come calling, but Barbed Oak always keeps a special allotment for themselves. Today’s wine is the fantastic result of their passionate vineyard management.
If you love a hearty but elegant Pinot, then today’s wine will be right up your alley.
