Pyramid Valley Vineyards "Earth Smoke" Pinot Noir 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

More fruit, brighter, nice mineral freshness, little fresh leather, a bit of meatiness, touch of flint, a bit calcareous, little stemmy, spicy nuances, super focus, bright, massive mineral backed raspberry fruit, then a huge cola, medicinal, spice not on the backend, finish is really savory, firm, a touch of black licorice bitterness, black cherry bitterness, brilliant

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
