Food Pairings for Paul Lato Pinot Noir Santa Maria Valley Suerte Solomon Hills Vineyard
"The 2010 Pinot Noir Suerte Solomon Hills Vineyard is fabulous. It boasts tremendous richness and power in its rich, heady, dark fruit. This is a classic expression of Solomon Hills Pinot. Persistent saline notes underpin layers of juicy yet precise, nuanced fruit. The 90% new oak is a bit prominent, but the Suerte is striking juice all the same...94+" WA 8/12 "Deep ruby. Perfumed nose displays raspberry, cherry-cola, pungent herbs, potpourri and mocha. Fleshy and sweet but also nicely focused, with a suave floral quality adding complexity to the flavors of raspberry, candied cherry and licorice. Impressively lush and broad, finishing with silky tannins and excellent floral persistence. This wine got 90% new oak "by accident," according to Lato. "I didn't intend to give it that much but as I tasted through the barrels I realized that it could handle it."...93" IWC 11/12
