BONACCORSI PINOT NOIR, BENTROCK VINEYARD, STA. RITA HILLS 2014
Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2014 Pinot Noir Bentrock has a beautiful nose of red roses, warm red cherries and cranberry sauce with hints of cinnamon stick and lavender. Medium-bodied, with fantastic intensity in the mouth, the bold, perfumed red berry flavors are backed by silky tannins and great freshness, finishing long.
NVWE Notes: Deftly poised between savory spice and zesty fruit, this wine is racy, elegant and eminently dinner-worthy. The nose is a subtle harmony of red currant, sour red cherry, strawberry, raspberry, blood orange and pink rose scents married to others of forest mushrooms, dried beef, peppered broth and a bit of Asian five spice. It is lean and quietly zesty on the palate, where gentle tannins firm the texture and tighten the mid-palate impression. The finish lingers well and the flavor package evolves considerably with airing to become dominated by strawberry, red currant, blood orange, morel mushroom, leather and baking spice flavors. Lovely now with Veal Marsala, Beef Stroganoff and the like, it should improve for another two or three years. 200 cases produced.
