Wednesday Wine Pick – 7/11

sevenpeaks

Each Wednesday I try to find a quality wine that won’t bust the budget. Seven Peaks California Pinot Noir 2016.

Deep, translucent ruby in color with a clear rim. Light, perfumed aromas greet you gently; blueberry, lavender, raspberry with a touch of cedar and graphite. The flavors are ripe blackberry, dark cherry and sweetened cranberries. Silky tannins. It has a finish that goes on forever; initially oaky but fades to warming and spicy.

Very pleasant. Paired well with grilled pork tenderloin. A great value at about $12 from Total Wine. I give it 89 points IMHO.
