Au Contraire Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast, Sonoma County, 2012

Just another California pinot noir? Au Contraire! This Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is brilliant ruby-garnet in color, revealing aromas of cherry, raspberry, plum and delicate violet accented by a subtle spiciness from French oak barrel aging. On the palate, bright fruit flavors are beautifully balanced by fine-grained tannins, elegant weight, and a silky texture. The finish is long and invites another sip. Pair with grilled and roasted meats such as lamb, pork, poultry, or with mild cheeses. Alc. 13.8% by vol.
