Excellent Burgundian earthiness. Nice simple red fruits with some great terroir. Perfect pairing for chicken sausage.
As far as the taste, the Tortoise Creek Pinot Noir is…….well……..not as “French” as I would have expected. It definitely has at least one foot in the “New World”, with the bright red cherry and raspberry shining through, in a nice balance to a savory component. The other (foot being in France) shows earthy, forest floor and leathery notes; but they aren’t so overwhelming as to alienate someone looking to step gently into French Pinot from who usually drinks Californian. The Tortoise Creek Pinot Noir remains light-bodied, fruit-forward and gentle on the tannins.
Very light and fruity. Incredibly smooth, with a nice Pinot touch, pairs well with almost anything. Definitely would like to get again, especially for the price.
