2015 Napa Valley Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir •Nord and Valhalla Vineyards
California: Napa Valley
Our Operatives love the wines of Anderson’s Conn Valley. Those that have been read in know that this prolific winery has a boutique sister label, Eagles Trace, whose wines are small production and highly prized.
Today’s 2015 Napa Valley Pinot Noir is one fine wine and we absolutely guarantee that you’ll love it!
On the nose, this wine is shy at first. Then, with a little swirling, it springs to life with tones of Bing cherry, cranberry, raspberry, cola, spice, briar patch, subtle spice and dried red rose petals.
The palate is balanced and delicious, with flavors of raspberry, cranberry, briar, kola nut, black cherry, dark chocolate and mild to medium spice.
Eagle’s Trace was founded by Gus & Phyllis Anderson, of Anderson’s Conn Valley fame. When Gus retired from Conn Valley at age 72, he started up Eagle’s Trace with his wife, his son Art, and Art’s wife. The new winery allowed the family team to experiment and make bold choices, in the vineyard and in the winery. The result is a line of wines that are incredibly expressive and oh, so very delectable.
We absolutely adore this dark, flavor-packed Pinot Noir - and we guarantee that you will, too!
Extra dark, with deep garnet hues at the core and light pink ruby at the edge.
Bing cherry, cranberry, raspberry, cola, spice, briar patch, subtle spice and dried red rose petals.
Raspberry, cranberry, briar, kola nut, black cherry, dark chocolate and mild to medium spice.
Red fruits politely dominate the palate, and as these finally begin to fade, other flavors rush to the fore. Gradually, flavors fade and a soft dryness spreads across the palate.
Enjoy this wonderful Napa Valley Pinot Noir with a pork roast, rubbed with garlic and rosemary, and finished with a fresh cherry glaze.
