Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Our SLH Pinot Noir hails from our Home Ranch vineyard and is a gorgeous medium red hue giving the clue that this is an old fashioned Pinot - no Syrah like dark monster this is. A cinnamon like spice combined with dark cherry and plum anchor the aromas, while wood, dry leaf, and caramel play a supporting role. The palate is still tight, dry, and youthful. Given a few years of cellaring this wine will also soften and open.
Food Pairing Notes
Consider pairing with a firmer-fleshed grilled fish, like Swordfish and Salmon, prepared with tomato in the sauce or perhaps the leanness and delicate flavor of veal.
