Sarah’s Vineyard Santa Clara Valley Pinot Noir 2018

SKU: 3103000641889573Categories: ,


Rich, bing cherry, raspberry, plum, and roses – the 2018 Santa Clara Valley Pinot Noir is a bouquet of red fruit and flowers. The bright red fruit aromas and flavors jump to the nose and palate with a hint of sage. A touch of vanilla bean and spice from the barrels both fill out the “middle” and complete the long finish. Winemaker Tim Slater suggests pairing grilled salmon with a beurre blanc sauce, a simple roast chicken and grilled vegetables, or a pancetta-wrapped pork tenderloin. COMMENTARY: The 2018 Sarah’s Vineyard Dwarf is attractive, nicely built, and ready to drink. TASTING NOTES: This wine excels with lovely aromas and flavors of candied berries and licorice. Pair it with Thai basil chicken over sesame rice. (Tasted: October 9, 2021, San Francisco, CA)
