2013 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir •Durell Vineyard
California: Sonoma County: Sonoma Coast
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.
Dark, translucent dark maroon hues, with a wide band of pinkish purple at the edge.
Santa Rosa plum, grilled fig, India black tea, strawberry, black cherry, blackberry, vanilla, subtle oak and sweet spice.
Juicy Bing cherry, young blackberry, Alpine strawberry and cherry cordial, followed by vanilla, subtle spice, oak and a very soft hint of white pepper.
Juicy fruit flavors fade slowly as plush tannins usher spice and vanilla to the far corners of the palate.
Chicken, fish, appetizers, BBQ and more are all worthy companions for this lively, delicious wine.
