This Pinot Noir boasts a dark burgundy color, and layers of rich toasty oak and ripe cherry aromas flow out of the glass with a hint of mint. On the palate, ripe boysenberry and bing cherry dominate the rich fruit profile and lead into a full mid-palate of red currant. These dark fruit flavors are balanced with a core of mellow, deeply integrated French oak with nuances of toast and cocoa. The body is silky but mouthfilling; overall, a very gutsy Pinot Noir
Our 2010 Aquinas Pinot Noir has a balanced bouquet of plum, blackberry and toasty vanilla, with floral notes of violet and Jasmine. Rich and full flavors of raspberry, peach skin and roasted walnuts rounded out with burntcaramel notes through the finish. This wine is medium bodied and fruit forward with nicely integrated acidity creating a versatile wine with depth.
