Food Pairings for Gloria Ferrer Pinot Noir Sonoma County Etesian
Journeyman Pinot Noir with definite Carneros character it was on a wine list at $40 (looks like a 3x markup). Has a mild nose of fruit and sun dried tomatoes. The acid is a bit low and the tannins slightly drying. Good but not great.
Wine Tasting Notes A multifaceted wine, the Carneros Pinot Noir emerges slowly, revealing complexity in each layer. Initially, one finds wild cherry, raspberry and smoky oak aromas in the glass, which opens gradually to violet and earth notes. A plush and finely s tructured palate conveys the wine's ripe pomegranate, cherry and earth flavors through a long finish.
As is always the case, the 2006 is a study in red fruit and earth. The aromas first display Bing cherry, rose petal and pomegranate, then open to wood spice, mocha and a complex dried leaf note. The palate is both silky and delineated, with an ample core of bright red fruit and autumn spice flavors that echo the nose.
