2018 Pinot Noir Eagle Peak (Rural Wine Co.)
Rural Wine Co., Pinot Noir, Eagle Peak, Mendocino, CA 2018RIPE CHERRY & BLACK RASPBERRY, FIRM & ASSERTIVE Finding its footing in the northern reaches of California’s promised lands, this Mendocino masterpiece is glorious in its “varietal correctness” and yet mischievously impressive in its ripe, powerful appeal. This muscular Pinot has a whisper of Mediterranean oomph which talk over its beautiful cherryish fruit and subtle spice. Interestingly, this wine is grown off of the Russian River albeit far north of what we normally think of regarding its vine-bearing banks. Serving Suggestion: Roast turkey legs w/ beet + cabbage slaw & rosemary-seasoned fries. Boiled shiitake & arugula salad w/ raspberry/ginger balsamic dressing.
