Benton-Lane 2013 Pinot Noir
375 ml size

2013 Estate Pinot Noir

The early spring and warm growing season allowed early flavor development. The wines burst with black cherry, cola, cranberry and a subtle floral nature akin to rose petals. The rains brought the overly extractive fruit notes and alcohol back into balance. The resulting wine is seductively drinkable. There is a unique chocolate flavor in the wine that we don’t normally see.

The intriguing dark rosewood color of this wine is accentuated by tantalizing aromas.  The dominant fruit scents favor black plums, currants and other darker fruits, with more complex aromas of graphite and smoked meats.  On the palate, one finds savory flavors of mocha and Italian herbs, rounded out by fruity nuances of black raspberries and Van cherries.  Built to last, this wine will gracefully age for 5-8 years, further complimenting the luscious and expansive mouth feel with aged pinot noir characteristics.

LIMITED PRODUCTION WINE

This wine is very similar to a fine Rosé wine from Provence.  It has a gorgeous light strawberry/rhubarb color.  The wine is perfectly balanced with just the right amount of strawberry, cherry and rhubarb flavors to make it a joy to drink as well as the acidity to render it refreshing.  This is a more elegant, tailored Rosé than some and will be enjoyed all by itself on the boat or patio or with lighter summer fare such as grilled fish tacos, pan roasted scallops or zesty salads.  But don’t drink it all before Thanksgiving as it will roll socks up and down with roast turkey and savory sage dressing.  Oh baby!

LIMITED PRODUCTION WINE

Chardonnay is an amazing varietal because it is so expressive.  This wine demonstrates that with aromas of apple, key lime, cinnamon and mango.  The wine has a generous mouth feel with flavors of apple, caramel, butter, honey, mango and crème brûlée.  This is a luxurious wine that will pair beautifully with grilled seafood and medium weight pastas -it is pure heaven with lobster or shrimp.   We suggest it be served slightly chilled.
