Pinot Noir Las Hermanas Vyd 2012

Wonderfully silky and seamless in texture, finishing with strong persistence and only a hint of sweet, fine-grained tannins. Arguably the most elegant of the Samsara Pinots.

Tasting Notes

Aromas of fresh raspberry, smoky minerals, candied flowers, and Asian spices. Intense spice-accented flavors of red fruit liqueur and rose pastille that showcase depth. Silky and seamless in texture with a hint of sweet, fine-grained tannins.

Food Pairing

Grilled quail with five-spice and pomegranate seeds, Tuna sashimi with sweet soy, Wild rice and mushroom pilaf
