Redwood Creek Pinot Noir United States California Red 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Jammy and stewy on the nose with heavy vanilla and dried fruit aromas topped with cedar chips. Bright if fairly innocuous on entry, this shows good acidity and noticeable dry wood tannins on the palate along with some dried red fruit and leathery, savory notes that lead to blueberry, raspberry jam and sandalwood on the back end. The finish is short and consists mostly of wood tannin and alcohol. 78pts

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.

My mom gave me this wine and it is just proof that we have never meet a bottle of wine that we both loved. This one really fell flat on its face for me. It is a little sweet for my taste (I'm guessing that is one reason my mom enjoyed it) and not very complex. Oh well to each his own
