Great Expectations

Today’s wine has a secret…

This delicious Pip Wines 2013 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir was made by Kenneth Juhasz, award-winning winemaker from Auteur and Dunstan - but that’s not the secret.

While doing some sleuthing, I’ve determined that today’s Pinot hails from the prized Durell Vineyard.

The Durell Vineyard is one of the most highly-prized vineyard sources in all of Sonoma County. Fruit from Durell Vineyard goes to ultra-premium labels such as Kistler, Chateau St. Jean, Chasseur, and Dunstan Auteur, and this very same fruit went into today’s wallet-friendly stunner.

Don’t miss out on this Super QPR (Quality to Price Ratio) and very highly recommended wine.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Dark, translucent dark maroon hues, with a wide band of pinkish purple at the edge.

Smell:

Santa Rosa plum, grilled fig, India black tea, strawberry, black cherry, blackberry, vanilla, subtle oak and sweet spice.

Taste:

Juicy Bing cherry, young blackberry, Alpine strawberry and cherry cordial, followed by vanilla, subtle spice, oak and a very soft hint of white pepper.

Finish:

Juicy fruit flavors fade slowly as plush tannins usher spice and vanilla to the far corners of the palate.

Pairing:

Chicken, fish, appetizers, BBQ and more are all worthy companions for this lively, delicious wine.
