Here is an idea for a Pinot Noir to accompany your Thanksgiving dinner and fixings.
The wine has a medium, ruby red core moving to a thin pink rim with medium legs. Its nose has medium intensity and is developing with aromas of cherry, earth, leaves and mushrooms. There’s also a hint of light spice.
The palate is dry with medium acidity and finely grained tannins. The alcohol is average and the medium plus body shows flavours of red cherries, mushrooms, forest floor, leaves, humus and spice. There’s a touch of light vanilla from the 20% aged in new oak barrels. A medium plus finish rounds out this wine.
This is a WSET Very Good example of a complex red Burgundy with beautifully balanced fruit and alcohol. It’s elegant and yet structured and completely enjoyable.
