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
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
