The caramelly, creme brulee sweetness of lavish oak is a major player in this big, well-extracted Pinot, but the wine does not give in to runaway ripeness, and it never loses sight of varietal fruit. It will not be accused of being delicate, but, when allowed a few years of age, it will make satisfying drinking with the likes of a flavorful Boeuf Bourguignon.
The Denver International Wine Competition concluded last week. The 14 judges gave our 2007 Pinot Noir Anderson Valley a gold medal. This lovely wine is now qualified to participate in the "Taste of Elegance" Chef's Food & Wine Competition in November.
The judges in this 29th Annual Wine Competiton worked over three days to judge over 4,000 wines. They gave our 2007 Pinot Noir Anderson Valley a silver medal.
