Benovia 2013 "Russian River Valley" Pinot Noir, CA

Ken's Wine Rating: Very Good+ (90)
Price: $38
KWG Score: 90
No. Professional Ratings: 1
# of Cases: 2,000
This bright red colored Pinot Noir from the Russian River opens with a fragrant and attractive blueberry bouquet with hints of black raspberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a tasty mild plum with notes of blueberry. I also detected hints of gentle minerality and Coke towards the end. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. I would pair this very nice Pinot with beef wellington or bacon wrapped monkfish. Enjoy - Ken
