St. Gregory Pinot Noir 2018, Mendocino
These Pinot Noir vineyards are all located in the cool valleys of Mendocino County. The winemaker employs traditional Burgundian wine making methods along with extended aging for 30 months in 5% new French Burgundy oak barrels.
This wine is dark purple garnet in color and Burgundian in style; with rich, full and attractive aromas/flavors of ripe black cherries, plum, toasty oak and hints of earth. Soft tannins, balanced acidity and a rich, velvety mouth-feel produce a luscious wine that is enjoyable now and will develop more complexity with additional aging in the bottle.
Delicious companions with this wine are duck with dried cherries, sage-roasted double pork chops with stuffing, and roasted lamb with Mediterranean vegetables.
