Cattleya Wines Alma de Cattleya Pinot Noir 2018
|Region||California, Sonoma County|
Winemaker Notes :
Elegant notes of raspberry, Black cherry, and plum are backed delicately by subtle spice and vanilla as this true representation of Sonoma County culminates with soft tannin and a long finish.
Pair with lamb or pork chops with grilled vegetables.
Aromas of cranberry, rose petal, wet gravel and slight tar greet the nose. The palate is earthy in tones of crushed rock, dried thyme and desert sagebrush, which give depth to the fresh cranberry-fruit backdrop.
A blend of sites and clones, all from Sonoma County, the 2018 Pinot Noir was destemmed and brought up in neutral French oak. There were 2,000 cases made. Revealing a medium ruby/translucent purple hue to go with a beautiful nose of spiced strawberries, raspberries, crushed flowers, and violets, it's beautifully textured and medium-bodied, with good acidity and outstanding length. You're going to be hard pressed to find a better Sonoma County Pinot Noir at the price, and it's going to drink brilliantly for 2-4 years.
