Smokey and sharp on the nose with some jammy raspberry fruit and floral top notes over an interesting base of perfumed wood and fragrant herb notes, with some juniper and pine nut accents. Lightweight and fresh on entry, this reveals juicy acidity and some tight grained tannins in the mouth to support slightly spicy, wood influenced flavors of cherry pie crust and dried herbs. There's a touch of heat here balanced by a gentle sweetness to the fruit, which finishes on a note of strawberry cream and allspice. 87pts


User Reviews for Girasole Vineyards Pinot Noir Mendocino County

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2010 Girasole Pinot Noir exhibits hues of red roses and ruby jewel tones. Wonderful aromas of strawberry, cherry and clove give way to sweet red cherries on the palate. A touch of new French oak lends texture and helps frame the wonderful sweet red fruit that radiates from this wine, and that classic Mendocino mineral backbone carries it to a long and lingering finish. This wine will pair wonderfully with braised duck breast with a cranberry reduction, or plank grilled salmon with garlic mashed potatoes. Of course, pulling a cork and having a glass or two on the porch would work too!
