Pinot Noir Schug Walter U.s.a. Californien Rødvin 2007
The cool growing season of the Sonoma Coast, which includes the western portion of Carneros, allows Pinot Noir to mature slowly while retaining its natural acidity, yielding a wine with ripe flavors and silky texture. By aging it primarily in large oak casks and "neutral" older barrels, we can emphasize the varietal character of the fruit while minimizing the extraction of new oak flavors or tannins. It has flavors reminiscent of cherries, strawberries and spice, with a lively finish that is an ideal accompaniment to grilled fish and fowl or barbecued meats.
Editorial Reviews for Pinot Noir Schug Walter U.s.a. Californien Rødvin
Bright yet soft with earthy and freshly green tinged red berry, strawberry fruits on the nose. This is soft and caressing on the palate with admirable purity and while it is a touch simple it offers good, precise fruits that are attractive and delicious. Finishes with a bit of orange rind acidity that is brisk and cleansing. Well made entry level pinot. Drink 2009-2011 89pts
