Saintsbury Pinot Noir Lee Vineyards Reserve 2009
The 2009 Saintsbury Lee Vineyard Pinot Noir has brooding aromas of ripe plums, briary fruits, spice box, tobacco and rose hips. Chocolate-laced briary black fruit flavors are supported by fine tannins and lively acidity. Lee has a wonderfully intriguing array of complex flavors that will evolve nicely for years to come.
First published in 1920, George Saintsbury’s “Notes on a Cellar-Book” has inspired many to experiment widely and to form opinions unaffected by the fashion of the day. Included in those ranks are Mr. Ward and Mr. Graves, who named their winery in honor of Professor Saintsbury.
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.
External Reviews for Saintsbury Pinot Noir Lee Vineyards Reserve
The 2009 Pinot Noir Lee Vineyard shows gorgeous depth in its dark red fruit, tobacco, spices and cedar. This plush, generous Pinot can be enjoyed today, but it will be even better in another year or two once the flavors develop a little. I especially... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2009 Saintsbury Pinot Noir Lee Vineyard 750ml
