Brilliant, cherry red in color, the Five Rivers Pinot Noir leads with with aromas of black raspberry and earth, with a nice hint of cedar. In the mouth you will find a pleasing bright acidity, slightly dusty, fine grained tannins and expressive varietal berry flavors with hints of earth.
Cold soaked for 2 days prior to a fairly warm fermentation. The grapes enjoyed approximately one week of skin contact time before pressing, the fermentation then finished after the skins were removed. Aged in seasoned oak barrels for 8-9 months prior to bottling.
Five Rivers Pinot Noir is an ideal match for chicken, veal and lamb dishes, as well as roasted beef and pork.
