Wild Ridge Vineyards
2013 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
California: Sonoma County: Sonoma Coast
In the Wild
Today’s delectable Wild Ridge 2013 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir shows all of the poise and balance of a Pinot of this class. This special wine is a must-have.
This is a Russian River Pinot drinker’s Sonoma Coast Pinot, dark and powerful with tons of spice and dark flavors, while still retaining the structure and acidity of a true Sonoma Coast. Drinks beautifully now, but with its fine structure and acidity, it’s sure to cellar beautifully as well.
Take this wine with you to your next dinner party and show off your good taste and excellent wine-buying skills!
Dark and deep ruby with purple undertones. Doesn’t look like a Sonoma Coast Pinot, but in a good way.
Bing Cherries with ripe raspberries and orange peel. There are tarter fruits underlying your initial impressions, think pomegranate and plum.
Power and elegance, rich dark cherry fruits with a hint of minerality underneath the firm tannins that are supremely well integrated, but aren’t afraid to grip your taste buds.
Soft and even finish rounding out with dark fruits and just a hint of anise spice.
Never be afraid to get a steak involved with this Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir! How about pork tenderloin with blue cheese and bacon cream sauce, or rack of lamb off a flame grill.
