Black cherry, plum -really good pinot for the $$
External Reviews for Heron Pinot Noir Sonoma County
Laely Heron studied in Bordeaux and has lived in Spain, France and California. This pinot noir is fermented in stainless steel them is moved to large French oak barrels. It is classically Californian with dark cherries, plum and vanilla bean, but balanced.
Brilliant medium garnet color. This wine shows bright, assertive aromas of plum and black cherry with solid Pinot Noir character. Notes of violets, anise, and allspice are as harmonious in the wine's flavor profile as its light overlay of fine French oak.
Bright, ripe, and wonderfully delicate, with a light spiciness that persists throughout. Red berry and cherry flavors immediately appear, followed by delicious cedar notes. The finish is light and airy with elegant, earthy notes, like a bit of underbrush mixed in with the berries. Among our best bargain-priced Pinot Noirs and a wonderfully fresh choice for any holiday meal.
Fruity and a bit one-dimensional, but offers very pretty, polished Pinot Noir character. Feels rich and silky in the mouth, with flavors of raspberries, cherries, cola and spices. Ready now.
Firm and spicy, with complex plum, mineral, cola, spice and tobacco scents that are full-bodied, firm and lingering. Good value for Pinot. Drink now through 2016.
<p>This wine is a blend of grapes from three vineyards in the Sonoma County appellation. The sandy loam soils and cool climates are perfect for producing top quality Pinot Noir. Heron Wines employs organic and sustainable agricultural methods whenever possible.</p>
