[+] Tasting & Pairing Notes

Tasting Notes:

Bright fruit aromatics range from grapefruit, mango, to apricot, leading to a flavor palate of lemon, grapefruit, apricot and tropical fruit. Its texture gives way to a wonderfully smooth and round finish that is easy to drink sitting out on the front deck. With a little higher acidity, it is very crisp with a soft, clean finish.

Pairing Suggestions:

This wine has excellent balance for drinking by itself at cool temperatures or with cheeses, bread, and a light virgin olive oil.

2011 Jordan Pinot Noir

11_JordanPinotNoir

The Jordan Block sits on 4.5 estate acres facing south at a steeper slope than the Natasha and getting more benefit from the coastal breeze each afternoon.  A wine with more earthy character and substance, the fruit from this block is especially age worthy. This wine will be at its best from 2016 to 2020.
