Silver Mountain Pinot Noir 2008 is a full-bodied red wine from the Santa Lucia Highlands in California. It is complex, with a lush and silky feel. The nose has notes of red and black fruits, smoke, licorice, and a hint of oak. The palate is bright, forward tart red cherry fruit, with spicy overtones of currant, clove, nutmeg, and a hint of violet. The oak components are subtle and play a supporting role, allowing the wonderful fruity attributes to shine through. The wine is soft and even, with lingering spice and red cherry fruit on the finish that keep you coming back for more.
This Pinot Noir is versatile, goes well with all kinds of food and meats especially poultry, game meat, mushroom dishes, goat cheese and anything served with berries.
Silver Mountain Pinot Noir 2008 wine is a testament to the cool climate and terroir of the Santa Lucia Highlands, a prime growing region for Pinot Noir grape. This wine was aged 15 months in Hungarian oak, a barrel choice that complements rather than dominates the delicate Pinot Noir fruit and produces a smooth, silky mouth-feel.
