D'Alfonso Curran Ranch La Vina Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2018
|Region||California, Central Coast, Sta. Rita Hills|
Black cherry in color with aromatics of boysenberry, and dark plum, accompanied by suggestions of fine leather and cardamom. This Pinot Noir is bold, with excellent structure and firm tannins, leading to a lasting, rich, and supple finish. Pairs well with Grilled Meats, Pâté, Oxtail Phó, and Beef Bourguignon, or, for dessert, Chocolate Soufflé.
Tart and tangy aromas of red plum, hibiscus and dewy herbs show on the nose of this bottling, which comes from the vineyard that's on the same property as this winery. Blistered plum and red-currant flavors meet with star anise and warm clove spices on the palate.
