Montinore Pinot Noir Pinot Noir Or 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2011 vintage was another cool year for us, we were harvesting well into November. The ability to produce such a lovely Pinot Noir in such a year demonstrates just why Pinot Noir is best grown in a cool climate. The nose is complex with aromas of cherry, blackberry, dried fruit, dried flowers, cedar, lilac, clove, anise and caramel. The bold palate is ripe with black cherries, black plums, vanilla, tar, smoke, bittersweet chocolate and pie spice which is balanced beautifully by bright acid, all within well-structured tannins. Pair this Pinot Noir with rich foods like grilled lamb, mushroom risotto, cassoulet, smoked gouda or Delice de Bourgogne.
