Food Pairings for Pepperwood Grove Pinot Noir
Pepperwood Grove 2009 Valle Central (Chile) Pinot Noir: This vintage is a disappointment compared to previous years of Valle Central, of which possessed a pleasant, noticeable Pinot Noir presence. The 2009 is certainly not drain pour for the price but has a somewhat sharp, although not pronounced, noticeable alcohol note upon a rather sweet, oddly very creamy vanilla and quite black licorice candy tasting body. Reasonable concentration of dark berry flavors (not too thin). There is a slight Pinot smokeyness but barely noticeable. Too sweet, and too much disappointment compared to previous vintages. Will avoid this vintage. Have 6 non vintage marked bottles (I'm guessing 2010) that I have yet to taste. Why am I suspecting the worst?

External Reviews for Pepperwood Grove Pinot Noir
Good value in a statewide appellation for the concentrated black cherry, vanilla and toast flavors and balance. Feels plump and juicy in the mouth, with a delicate structure.
Round and accessible, offering cola, licorice and chocolate flavors. Drink now through 2002.
Softly tannic, with black cherry, fresh herb, dried currant and plenty of mocha from toasty oak. Drink now through 2004.
Starts off with flavors of wild cherry and spicy oak and then streamlines all the way to the soft finish. The perfect wine for nearly every occasion. Match this one with fish, poultry, stews or serve by itself.
Medium in both color and body, the wine has a slight hint of strawberries and violets in the nose and an earthy, spicy middle. The finish is tasty. Try it with fowl, or even salmon.
The cool coastal regions of northern California produce a light, easy drinking blend of spice, berry and a slight earthiness. Great for everyday chicken and pork dishes.
Pale pinkish red. Moderately light-bodied. Moderately extracted. Mildly tannic. Rounded, ripe palate has dark berry flavors with mild astringency through the finish. This has some good varietal flavors.
