2009 Robert Sinskey Vineyards Pinot Noir Los Carneros

2013-09-04 20.01.59

Right after opening, this wine exhibited some floral notes on the nose. Along with some oak and earthiness, there was good acidity up front. It was a little light on the finish though. After one hour, the wine opened up more and was much brighter. Hints of cherry, vanilla, and spice came through with some smokey character. There was a good medium body with just enough tannins in this wine.

This pinot noir was a crystal ruby color. As cliche as it sounds, pairing it with juicy meat like crispy duck breast would be delicious.

2008 Domaine Serene Evenstad Reserve Pinot Noir

I’ve decided to add another wrinkle to this blog and post some of wines I’ve been enjoying. Nothing special, but hopefully the frequency of my updates will pick up.

Elegant medium-bodied character to this lush and slightly darker colored Pinot Noir. Drank over two days, with increasing complexity. Lots of red berry fruit flavor, especially on the nose, balanced with soft tannins allowed this to drink smoothly with a lingering finish. Great by itself and has enough to be paired well with food.
