2010 Pinot Noir-------Alder Springs Vineyard, Mendocino------- Bronze Medal/ Orange County-------This is a subtle and elegant Pinot, very reflective of the 2010 growing season in the Coastal Mountains of northern Mendocino County. This Pinot speaks the poetry of terroir, from the first hint of its bouquet, to the long smooth finish. Medium in color the wine is well structured and full on the palate with moderate soft tannins, good acid, a long finish; with ripe and candied strawberries, clove, and nuances of orange peel. Pairs perfectly with bbq’d salmon and duck rillette crostini, and manchego cheese with local honey.
