The 2009 Estate Pinot Noir packs a full range of flavors. Beginning with the nose one encounters dark red fruits including raspberry and black cherry, complemented by hints of anise spice and an undercurrent of loamy forest floor. The palate delivers cedar, juicy red fruit flavors, and a persistent hint of dark chocolate with a broad richness of even-tempered tannin that stretches into a long finish.
A wine of nuances, depth and layers of bright red fruits complimented by soft tannins.
It is a delicate wine intensely aromatic with notes of strawberries, cherries, orange peel combined with hints of clove, rose petals, and black tea. 2001 Avant-Garde is a wonderful accompaniment to salmon and meat.It will also enhance the vibrant flavours of California or Mediterranean cuisine.It is perfect for enjoyment right now but will continue to age and develop for many years.
