External Reviews for Mark West Pinot Noir California
Crushed red berries, smoky oak, licorice and floral notes dominate the heady bouquet. The wine is full-bodied and quite rich on the palate with black cherry fruit, and subtle vanilla-flavored oak well balanced by soft supple tannins that finish soft and sweet.
Enticing aromas of cherry-raspberry pie and cola berry intertwine with barrel notes of candied vanilla and spice. Oak aging rounds out the palate and gives the wine its body. Deep rich berry compote flavors. Pinot from beginning to silky finish.
For over 40 years, we've been making wine with fruit sourced from California's most renowned coastal appellations. We specialize in Pinot Noir and our 2011 vintage is one of our best-a medium-bodied, fruity red that enjoys savory aromas of black cherries, raspberries, spice, and smoky oak. The core reveals layered flavors of red and black cherries, along with cranberries and a spicy note of cardamom from oak aging. Rich in texture with a lingering finish, this versatile wine is delicious on its own or paired with a juicy cheeseburger, grilled salmon, or Thanksgiving with all of the fixings. - Winery
