J Vineyards & Winery J Black Label Multi Appellation Pinot Noir 2016
|Brand||J Vineyards & Winery|
54% Sonoma County; 31% Monterey County; 15% Santa Barbara County. This Pinot Noir opens with aromatic notes of black cherry and baking spice. The soft, silky palate features bright, fruity notes of cranberry, fig and fresh orange peel, with hints of dark, brambly fruit, black tea and clove. Enjoy this wine with grilled salmon with cranberry-wild rice pilaf, grilled pork ribs with pomegranate-molasses barbeque sauce and tangy jicama slaw or Morbier cheese with a blackberry gastrique.
Sonoma County provides the majority of the fruit for this multi-appellation red, a bold, richly layered wine with grippy, gritty texture. Full-bodied boysenberry flavor upholds seasonings of licorice and cardamom, remaining velvety on the finish.
