Ultimate Beverage Challenge 87 points - (Tried & True Award) Soft and restrained on the nose with red currant, goji berry, red flowers, and toasted coconut. The palate is fresh and juicy with red plum, bing cherry, baked peach, and a touch of tangerine. The finish is fruity and smooth. (Jul 2015)
Bold and seductive, with bright fruit, ripe cherry, cola and a dash of spice on the palate, and pleasant, gentle tannins on the finish. Pairs well with grilled salmon, glazed pork ribs and BBQ chicken.
|Wine maker notes|
|The Gnarly Head winemakers secretly call Pinot Noir "the heartbreak grape.” Notoriously difficult and challenging to grow and vinify, yet impossibly seductive on the palate, it takes a combination of daring winemaking skill and exceptional vineyards to wrest greatness from this alluring variety which we make in our own gnarly style. Our Pinot Noir has voluptuous, sleek tannins and lush fruit with aromas and flavors of violet, black cherry and plum with hints of toasted oak, cigar box, earth and spice. Round up some friends, break out a bottle of Gnarly Pinot Noir and enjoy with grilled salmon, glazed pork ribs or roast turkey.|
