2016 Woodward Collection Tesoro Pinot Noir

Tasting Notes

This dark ruby red wine exhibits aromas of lavendar and black cherries intertwined with toasty oak aromas. The palate shows lovely acid and tannin balance which lingers with a soft, silky mouth feel. Enjoy this wine now or age for a good 7 years.

Winemaking Notes

“Tesoro” meaning treasure in Italian exemplifies the elegance and finesse of our flagship Pinot Noir. Harvested by hand from carefully selected vineyards, our Tesoro was patiently aged for 18 months in French oak before resting an additional year in the bottle. Earthy notes are accompanied by aromas of raspberry and black currents.

Food Pairings

Pinot Noir is the best varietal for food pairing because of it’s flexibility. John’s favorite is a carefully seasoned Rib Eye Steak but it is equally satisfying with Christmas Turkey or Thanksgiving Ham.
