2008 Carneros-Napa Valley Pinot Noir
The 2008 Pinot Noir (Truchard Vineyards) burst with elegant cranberry and aromas of mushroom and spice. Ryan and Lane like to think this vintage brings the funk! The up and down growing season created a unique earthy bouquet with amazing lush elegant fruit to create a very complex wine. The wine was aged for 12 months in 10% new french oak and 90% neutral french oak. The 2008 Pinot Noir is a very fun wine that will continue to develop into a unique complex Pinot Noir.
Tasting Notes: Rich berry fruit flavors of strawberry and raspberry explode on the nose and continue on the palate with hints of lavender and rhubarb. This earthy 2008 Miracle One Pinot Noir is delicate and defined finishing with nutty oak flavors and dusty earth tones of mushroom and spice.
