Rex Goliath Pinot Noir Central Coast 2009
The aromas are characteristic of the cool Central coast vineyards that yielded the majority of the grapes for this wine. Red berry perfume with a touch of cinnamon spice, wrapped in a blanket of subtle French oak. Breathe it in. This is one of Pinot Noir's great pleasures. The taste is pure Pinot, too. Mouth-filling overripe raspberry and cherry flavors. Soft and supple are a few of the descriptors I would use. The wine exhibits a velvet finish due to the soft tannins and understated acidity.
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.
I enjoy this wine more than some of the more expensive Pinot Noir that are out there. It is easy to sip. I first tasted it at a wine tasting at our local super booze store. We were tasting wines that were easily 6 times more expensive. Wow, this one was just better tasting and easier on my pocketbook!! What is not to like?
