Nicholson Ranch Pinot Noir Sonoma Valley 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The wet winter of 2005/06 allowed us to begin dry-farm a portion of our Pinot Noir vineyards. This vintage utilizes the more concentrated flavors produced by dry-farming to accent the composition of the final wine. The aromatics have the now traditional high toned red fruits and orange Peel plus raspberries and cinnamon. This wine packs a punch on the palate. A rich, weighty mouthfeel full of our classic cherry/berry combination shows through immediately, uninterrupted by oak or tannin. Very ripe-fruit and fruit-forward, this newest vintage is a crowd pleaser.

fruit foward and freindly, has enough complexity in its own right to go well with pizza.
