Food Pairings for Villa Maria Pinot Noir Cellar Selection
The wine presented itself well in the glass from the beginning. No need for decanting. In the glass it is clear and lively, dense, cherry/ruby red with negligible gradient towards the rim with heavy viscosity. On the nose it is aromatic, complex, fully developed. Main aromas would be red and black berries and spice (reminding me of winter smells). Oak is also present but well integrated as are the tannins. On the palate it was quite smooth with a nice long finish. It is mouth-filling, complex and spicy. Acidity was fresh and tannins well kept in check. In layman's terms, it a nice wine that can be matched to tasty food and at the same time it is very smooth and pleasant however not easily overpowered. I would recommend this wine as it is versatile and will please most palates. It is not overwhelming to those who prefer their wines to be elegant however it will also please those who love forward fruity wines.
