Leese-Fitch Pinot Noir 2018
Balanced with just the right amount of acidity and fruit, this Pinot Noir boasts alluring aromas of crushed pomegranate, fresh cherry, graham cracker, and thyme. Flavors on the palate showcase sweetened cranberry, tart raspberry, vanilla cream and hints of blood orange. The finish is intriguing and complex with herbal notes framed by nutmeg and vanilla.
This Pinot Noir would pair well with a lighter dish such as roasted chicken served over mashed potatoes with rosemary au jus. It would also pair wonderfully with pan-roasted vegetables over brown rice topped with shaved pecorino cheese.
Blend: 82% Pinot Noir, 10% Barbera, 5% Valdigue, 3% Zinfandel
