Product Description

Tasting notes

Dark and ‘pinocity’ on the nose – notes of dark and red fruits with a pretty, perfume bombard the nose. On the palate, the entry is rich and smooth – and then shows sweet, dark and red fruits e.g. blackberry, black cherry, cranberry and plum that are well integrated with some interesting Asian spice and subtle sweet oak. The finish is mouthwateringly sweet, long and lingering. This is a rich, yet elegant Pinot Noir.

Balanced and complex, this wine is drinkable now, but should age nicely for another 10+ years.

Food pairing notes

Showing delightful fruity tones it has some flexibility with regards to pairing. I think this wine right now, is tasting like an excellent Thanksgiving wine!

Vineyard notes

The Sangiacomo’s Roberts Road Vineyard is a 130 acre vineyard; it is a well-drained site planted on a creek bed, initially planted in 1999. Because the fog can often remain until midday, the growing season is long and slow – allowing for nicely ripened fruit, with balanced sugars and acids allowing for complex flavor development. The vineyard is Certified Sustainable – CSWA – and grows cool climate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. This is always one of our last vineyards to be picked.
