Today’s Villa Mt. Eden 2009 Bien Nacido Vineyard Pinot Noir is a rare gem. One that delivers incredible value - and an exceptional, delicious, elegant drinking experience.
Garnet from core to edge, with perfect clarity.
Lush and full, with bold black cherry, cedar plank, raspberry, wild mushroom, sweet tobacco, forest floor and soft spice.
Black cherry and blackberry juice wrapped around sweet spice, raspberry, dusty bramble, tobacco leaf, cocoa powder and forest floor.
Long and bright with darker fruits tailing off to earth and spice components. Supple tannins spread a crushed velvet dryness across the palate.
Enjoy this wine with an herb roasted chicken or BBQ baby back ribs, slathered with a tangy sauce.
