November 1, 2017: Pinot Night

I was given a bottle for my birthday from some friends with good taste, but I just couldn't hold onto to it. 

2015 Purple Hands Holstein Vineyard Dundee Hills Pinot Noir

Unfined and unfiltered, this small production pinot had great acidity, with aromas of cherry bubble gum, raspberry torte, sweet herbs, and a subtle hint of herbs. At its young age, it had medium tannins and drank real easy. The young winemaker is a force to keep an eye on. Paired with a carmelized onion, goat cheese, and duck confit pizza. 

Soundtrack to this bottle: Soulive - No Place Like Soul
