Kent Rasmussen Pinot Noir St. Helena 2003

Member Review by Tudz Drkl:

The nose was very Pinot Noir: some black fruit, leather and barnyard. The taste curve was easy to describe and very enjoyable. Nice, clean fruit upfront and a leathery and smooth finish. I found the transition between the start and the finish to be interesting as it felt like the tide coming in. Sometimes the taste was the fruit other times the the leather until, eventually, the latter took over. The finish was medium length. This was good with or without food but really shined when matched with my Duck

Kent Rasmussen Winery:
We've been making fabulous Pinot Noir since 1979, and to that we've added a single-vineyard Petite Sirah, a lovely Chardonnay, and various esoteric wines that change every year - Late Harvest Viognier, Riesling, Cabernet Franc... make an appointment to see us at our convenient Silverado Trail winery !
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
