Verada Pinot Noir

verada-pinot-noir

Dark garnet color. Spicy, savory aromas and flavors of spiced cherries and nuts, roasted beets, hint of bbq jerky, and alpine herb mint with a silky, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a smooth, distinctive, medium-long sassafras, orange blossom tea, and nuts finish with fine, dusty tannins and light oak. A complex, savory pinot noir with lots of interesting flavors and pairing possibilities.

Pinot Noir is one of the world’s most fascinating red varieties. While many red grapes produces wines of power and youthful intensity, a wine made from Pinot Noir is often more refined with higher acidity and lower levels of tannins. The spiritual home for Pinot Noir is Burgundy, where it is produced in many styles, from very light to examples that can age for two to three decades.

Pinot Noirs tend to have aromas and flavors red cherry fruit, while some offer notes of wild strawberry, plum or even floral notes such as carnation and red roses. As tannins in Pinot Noir are not as pronounced as in a grape such as Cabernet Sauvignon or Nebbiolo, most Pinot Noirs can be enjoyed upon release, which is usually two to three years after the vintage.
