When poured, our 2012 Don & Sons Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir displays an inky ruby color in the glass. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes wild strawberry and dried tea leaves, with complicated nuances of Tahitian vanilla and violets. Sweet, supple and graceful in the mouth, the silky texture and lively tart raspberry avors take shape on the palate. It expands nicely on the nish, leaving behind orange marmalade and notes of toasted cloves.
This alluring wine, often seen as the ultimate food wine, is made to pair with a bevy of dishes. Try with vegetable bruschetta, or roast pork loin and morel mushrooms for a heartier meal.
