Keller Estate Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast la Cruz Vineyard 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Enthusiast Review Keller enters the big leagues with this marvelously layered Pinot Noir. For starters, it's delicious. Dry and crisp, the flavors are of ripe cherries, raspberries, tangerines, pomegranates and cola with smoky spicy complexities from new French oak. The mouth feel is smooth and velvety, leading to a long finish. Best now through 2010. Wine Tasting Notes Rich, sweet cherry and pomegranate flavors fan out across the palate and carry all the way through the long finish. While there are plenty of fine tannins and balanced acidity to give the wine structure, there is a silkiness to the texture.

A Gold Medal Wine Club selection. The Keller Estate La Cruz Vineyard 2005 Pinot Noir brims with aromas of ripe cherry with pipe tobacco, baking spice, orange peel and forest floor. As the wine opens up, the fruit becomes more concentrated and complex. Rich, sweet cherry and pomegranate flavors fan out across the palate and carry all the way through the long finish. While there are plenty of fine tannins and balanced acidity to give the wine structure, there is a silkiness to the texture that makes this wine delicious now, but also able to age beautifully over the next few years. Try pairing with grilled balsalmic-marinade salmon and Moroccan chickpea stew.
