Estancia Estates

Type: Pinot Noir
Year: 2003
Location: Gonzales, Monterey, Central Coast, California
Rating: 9.5 out of 10
Opinion: This was a phenomenal Pinot. I have never before had a wine with such a smooth texture, aromatic bouquet, and terrific finish that lingers for several minutes after the drink. The flavors of cherry and raspberry are subtle and non-overpowering and complement the natural flavor of the grapes.

I also received a set of Riedel “O” wine tumblers last Christmas that I used for the first time with this wine. I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed using these glasses. I don’t think I will buy stemmed glasses again. They made the experience more enjoyable.
