Wine Recommendation

Tondre Wines

2009 Pinot Noir, Tondre Grapefield
(Santa Lucia Highlands)

Its medium garnet color hints at the considerable aromatic development this finely-constructed gem displays just three years after its vintage. The expected SLH dried orange peel and spiced cherry signature aromas are now carried by a symphony of seductive nougat, cinnamon, smoked sage and toffee bouquet elements.

The structure is silky and warm, with a rich, oily texture that coats the mouth with exotic perfumes, stonefruit and savory spices. Carries its 14.8 alcohol seamlessly, with a long, graceful finish.

A wine that will certainly please his holiday season!
