Thanksgiving plans are in motion and we offer a perfect pairing for your turkey dinner. If you secured some of the Elkhorn Peak Cellars Pinot Noir featured earlier this year, then you know the quality Elkhorn Peak Cellars produces. To grace your table we suggest this RESERVE Pinot Noir, a selection of premium grapes from the best vineyard location on their property.
This lovely translucent red Pinot Noir is earth-driven on the nose, but backed up by intense red fruit. The palate is multifaceted as the flavors of bing cherry, rhubarb, raspberry, truffle, rose petal, caraway and sweet wood intermingle. The finish is impressively intense.
Although this wine is a true expression of its own place (what the French refer to as "terroir"), Jamieson Canyon, I couldn't help the nostalgia that crept in for some of the finest Burgundies.
