Sterling Pinot Noir, Carneros, 2011
Our Pinot Noir opens with aromas of vivid raspberry and subtle oak, leading to a plush entry of silky red berry fruit, elegant supporting acidity and a long, supple finish. Carneros' long growing season ensures ample time for the development of complex flavors, complemented by aging the wine in oak barrels for 10 months. A classically versatile grape, Pinot Noir will complement a range of flavors, including salmon, roast pork and grilled vegetables. - Harry Hansen. - Alison Rodriguez. www.sterlingvineyards.com.
