Longoria Pinot Noir Santa Maria Valley Bien Nacido Vineyard 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The wine has a medium dark color with violet hues. The aroma is a complex array of Asian spices, sandalwood, and candied beets. On the palate, the wine is medium bodied, with an exquisite balance of flavor components, acidity and oak nuances. The result is a nearly perfect balanced wine, where all the components are in harmony. As a winemaker this is what I try to achieve in all of my wines, but some wines, such as this wine, demonstrate it better than others. Suggested food pairings include quail, veal and salmon.
