Diora La Petite Grace Pinot Noir 2016

SKU 3729


Dark ruby in the glass, aromas of blackberries and roasted almonds mingle with nuances of toasted marshmallows and brown sugar. Soft and velvety, robust with a voluptuous and full-bodied mouthfeel, the palate unfolds with luxurious layers of intense red cherry, and a delicate hint of blueberry (imparted by the Malbec). A long, lingering finish instills a lasting impression of rich, concentrated flavors, vanilla bean and toasted oak. Richly-flavored and full-bodied, this Pinot Noir does not shy away from heartier fare. Serve with a dry-rubbed porterhouse steak, wood-fired pizza with fresh fig and prosciutto, baby back ribs and sweet barbecue sauce, mocha truffles.

Wine EnthusiastThis is an expertly delivered steak house Pinot Noir, with big, booming aromas and flavors. Concentrated, intense tones of Bing cherry and boysenberry are lifted by star anise and a strong floral character on the nose. The palate brings flavors of boysenberry pie and vanilla, with bright acid and smooth but hearty tannins.
