Vine Hill Santa Cruz Mountain Pinot Noir 2007

Member Review by dynowine:

No need to travel to the Santa Cruz Mtns, you'll smell it on the nose of this pinot. Aroma of resin, almost a faint gasoline smell, but it's not offensive, just interesting. Could that aroma originate from all the pines and redwood trees in the mountains? On the palate, red fruit, light pepper, a mild spice, some mineral, a bit of earth, light to medium body. Finish is long with an oil flavor, even a hint of strong butter or leather. A good conversation wine, but know its terroir first.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
