Castle Rock Pinot Noir Mendocino 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Our Castle Rock Pinot Noir was produced from grapes grown in Northern Californias beautiful Mendocino County, where vineyards were first planted in the early 1860s. Here, the headwaters of the Russian River carve a fertile and rugged landscape. The warm summers, cool springs, crisp falls and wet winters make ideal growing conditions for Pinot Noir grapes, in a climate similar to that of the Burgundy region of France, where the grapes were first established. This elegant and medium-bodied wine has delicate aromas of violet and rose petals, complex flavors and long silky textures, with layers of strawberry and raspberry leading into a long refined finish.

Bright fruit flavors, a silken texture, and fine tannins make the Castle Rock a pristine example of California Pinot Noir. With its classic nuances of cola and toast, this is a wine meant to compete with the finest offerings of Pinot Noir at this price point. Great with herb-roasted chicken.

"Soft and open-textured with vivid red plum and berry flavors on a polished frame, lingering nicely. Drink now. 8,000 cases made." (Dec. 15, 2008) This elegant medium-bodied wine offers aromas of cherry and spice. On the palate the wine gives flavors of berries, cinnamon, black cherry, sweet vanilla, oak, and floral notes, with a long velvety finish. This versatile wine pairs well with lamb, chicken, veal, salmon and light pasta dishes.
