The 2009 Perli Pinot Noir is a wine that is firmly on the earthy and spicy end of the Pinot spectrum. Bright-red cherry and wild strawberry comes across on the nose. Layered aromas of earth, leather, and mushroom envelop the bright cranberry and cherry notes to present a lively wine on the palate. Flavors of cherry and wild strawberry mix with white pepper and fine-grained tannin to create a medium-long finish that will just get silkier with time in the bottle. Given its complex, earthy flavor, this wine is a perfect pairing for game and for meals that typically call for a full-bodied red.
Please note, given the limited bottles that remain, this wine is not eligible for Industry nor the Cartograph Circle discount.
