In the glass this Yorkville Highlands Pinot has a mid-brick core surrounded by maroon edges that give way to a THICK translucent halo….
The nose is delicate and pretty with elegant cranberries and black cherries before floral violet and jasmine notes make this thing an absolute KNOCK OUT….
A taste starts light on the palate with more of the ripe cranberries I got on the nose before rose petals and red cherries come out to play ———-> A chew and a swish open up a mid-palate that takes an unexpected but welcomed meaty turn with unseasoned and lightly smoked pork butt sitting in a bed of white pepper before this guy finishes with a white chocolate and vanilla kick that carries into a looooooong black fruit ending….
Here’s a Pinot from Theopolis Vineyards that proves an impossible point that bright fruit, floral notes, and a meaty component can actually work together to create something special ———–> Thanksgiving is coming up next week and THIS wine would work BEAUTIFULLY with your turkey dinner!!!! 🎧🎧🎧 Listen to this wine with a song from a guy who knew how to mix pop and funk with a lil bit of rock and roll like Prince – Little Red Corvette
