Pellegrini | Hurst Vineyard Pinot Noir '13
Russian River Valley
Double Gold (San Francisco Wine Competition)
100% Pinot Noir
The Pellegrini Hurst Vineyard Pinot Noir displays expressive aromas of red cherry and raspberry accented by an exotic spiciness. A glorious swell of bright cherry and frambois in the mouth gives way to surfacing layers of hazelnut praline, caramel, cocoa, earthy truffle, and cardamom. Most alluring is the wine’s lavish texture, distinguished by a luxuriously velvety and voluptuous mouthfeel that persists through its superbly smooth finish. Decadent now, but holding in the cellar for five to eight years will encourage evolution of the wine’s bouquet.
