Cakebread Cellars Pinot Noir Carneros 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The fresh, enticing nose of our 2009 Carneros Pinot Noir offers vivacious Bing cherry, red raspberry and red plum aromas complemented by lovely vanilla, tea-leaf spice and toasted oak scents. On the supple, richly textured palate, the wine delivers wonderfully deep, juicy, cherry and plum flavors framed by seamlessly integrated tannins and a long, fruitful finish punctuated by savory spice tones. Thoroughly delicious now, this superb Carneros Pinot Noir will age gracefully in bottle for another 3-5 years.

I had this as part of a Cakebread tasting that I won! Yeay! This smells a little toasty and of cabbage. Light like a Pinot usually is, the balance was a little off with a lack of acid. The savory pairing of turkey with stuffing definitely helped bring out the juiciness of the wine, making it more flavorful alone. It was as if it just needed a pinch of salt. Probably easy to pair anything with this wine. For more on the tasting please visit http://dionyshius.blogspot.com/2012/06/cakebread-at-wine-encounter.html
