Food Pairings for Craggy Range Pinot Noir Martinborough Te Muna Road Vineyard
I had this delicious pinot noir at Alioto's Italian Restaurant in San Francisco; with a rich and spicy tomato based seafood stew (cioppino I believe they call it). I shared the bottle with friends over mixed entrees. It caught me by surprise. Unlike any pinot noir that I have had before or since. It was bold, spicy, had some weight to it, and was velvety in textrue. It made such an impression on me, I kept the cork to remind me to search for it back home in Atlanta, GA. This vintage was impossible to find or order in Atlanta, GA. I finally found someone to order in a half case of the 2006 vintage. I hope that it is as enjoyable as the 2004 vintage.
The color is bold, moving into dusk-purple. The nose is a perfume of violets, black plums and smoked mushroom. Flavors of ripe berry fruit flood the mouth, with forest floor and root spices. The palate is elegant and velvety, give the wine a warming yet clean feel, carrying intense flavors into a seamless, lingering finish.
