This is a Gold Medal Wine Club Platinum Series selection. The Loring Wine Company’s 2006 Cargasacchi Vineyard Pinot Noir is a very limited new release from Brian Loring, a small producer who has the ‘Midas touch’ when it comes to making California Pinot Noirs. He burst onto the scene with his high scoring inaugural 2004 vintages, and it seems his 2006 releases are setting the bar even higher. Don’t let the screw cap fool you, this 2006 Cargasacchi Vineyard Pinot Noir just scored an exceptional 97 Points by the Pinot Report and 94 Points by Wine Enthusiast magazine: “A compelling Pinot Noir. Dry and crisp in acids, it’s enormously complex, with the cherry, pomegranate and cola fruit flavors made more interesting with the tastes of earth, mushrooms, balsamic and espresso.” Deep ruby colored, this Pinot Noir has deep, spicy, pepper aromas with berry notes and big, rich, intense flavors of black cherry, pepper and spice. Moderate tannins and subtle sweet oak notes give excellent structure with good balance and a long finish. Pair the Loring 2006 Cargasacchi Vineyard Pinot Noir with pork tenderloin, smoked salmon, and leg of lamb. 100% Pinot Noir. Enjoy now until 2012.
