Deep purple garnet colored, this Pinot Noir offers medium intensity aromas of plum, cola and brown spice as well as light vanilla aromas and hints of heather. On the palate, medium intensity cola and underbrush mingle with light strawberry, rose hips and mineral. Softer acids and a veil of supple tannins make for a velvety smooth mouthfeel in this lighter-bodied wine. A medium length finish is more straightforward with strawberry flavors and mineral notes.
Complex, with dark, alluring qualities, this 2005 Clos Pepe Vineyards Pinot Noir from Ryan Carr offers rich and well integrated aromas and sophisticated, somewhat demure flavors. Its opulence and softer acids lend itself to earlier drinking as a social wine for the immediate gratification of a sinful indulgence over the next 3 to 4 years. This wine may also pair well with lighter red meat dishes as well as pastas.
Good, with appealing characteristics.
