Food Pairings for Tortoise Creek Pinot Noir les Oliviers
Editorial Reviews for Tortoise Creek Pinot Noir les Oliviers
Oddly candied and herbal on the nose with sweet strawberry fruit paired with cinnamon red hot candies and bitter beet root and minty green accents. Low acid making this a bit round and plump in the mouth, though of modest scale with simple earthy plummy fruit and just a hint of the spicy cinnamon found on the nose. Smooth and very easy to drink this gets a bit pasty on the modest finish. 82pts
'Les Oliviers' is less 'jammy' than its Californian cousins. It is perhaps more Burgundian and is delicate. It has lovely aromas of violets and shows ripe raspberry characteristics on the palate. It is a gorgeous food wine and works well with roast meats, tuna and cheeses.
