2013 Pinot Noir Stewart Ranch
Still a young wine, the lovely French oak floats out over the aroma. Slightly buttery to start, the red currant and black cherry soon take over and a bit of the truffly spicy Pinot Noir hint of more complex aromas to come. Satiny texture makes this young wine amazingly drinkable. It has a soufflé type richness, dense in the mouth and then light and graceful on the finish. Would go hand in hand with a wild mushroom risotto. This wine had no fining and no filtration. A small ppt may occur in the future as it was 22 NTU, but Cellogum was added to keep tartrates and particles in suspension.
