Food Pairings for Trecini Cellars Vicini's Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
Clone 777 gives us a brightness of fruit and spice orientated character leading to a complex velvety palate feeling. Well balanced, keen acidity, clean mouth feel, good light tannic structure, and a grape that creates beautiful aromas of strawberry, raspberry, red current and cherry. Clone 828, on the other hand, allowed for a ripe low acidic darker fruit with tight clusters, including earthy minerals and a fatter vicious finish. The pairing of the two clones married the intense nose with a balanced palate bringing black/blue fruits with the strawberries and spice taking a back seat. The front palate delivers more red fruit expanding through the mid palate with a rich array of fruit and oak influence. Dark chocolate, spice and cola dance with the fruit to allow for a powerful finish which gently lingers and allows for a long expression of delicate red fruits that Pinot Noir is known to express.
