2018 Leras Family Vineyards ~ Pinot Noir ~ Russian River Valley ~ 750 ml

Tasting Notes

An elegant yet complex nose of ripened red fruits, crème brûlée, subtle baking spices, oak and earth instantly appears when the wine is uncorked. Juicy, fresh-picked raspberry and cherry flavors drive this wine, with more sweet oak and cola emerging as the wine opens. The balanced acidity leaves a lingering, smooth finish, making each sip more satisfying than the last. Ideal pairings for this Leras Family Vineyards Pinot Noir are paella, cedar-planked salmon and herb-crusted rack of pork.
