2018 D'Alfonso-Curran Pinot Noir, Sanford & Benedict, Sta. Rita Hills
Dark garnet in color with brilliant aromatics of Rainer cherry, wild rose, and pomegranates, accompanied by hints of lavender, and sandalwood. This Pinot Noir is rich, yet demure, and beautifully structured with subtle, silky tannins, leading to an elegant finish. Pairs well with cleanly Grilled Ahi, Wild Game, Duck, and Steak Tartare, or, for dessert, Cherry Ice Cream.
