Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Pinot Noir from Tom Eddy is not shy or delicate wine. It opens with a fragrant pomegranate and black raspberry bouquet with a hint of mango. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, smooth, fruit forward and savory. The flavor profile is a rich and complex blend of extracted black raspberry with notes of minerality, black pepper and nicely integrated oak. I also detected hints of black licorice and plum. The finish is dry and its flavors, spice notes and medium tannins stick around for a little while. This Pinot was even showing superbly on day 3 which is very impressive. That said, I would decant this Pinot for a little while and pair it with grilled blackened salmon. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: The 2013 Manchester Pinot exemplifies the unique qualities this coastal vineyard brings to the table. There is an Old World nuance to this wine showing subtle earthy notes and an elegant mouthfeel. Like a classic Burgundy, this wine supremely complements an array of foods and will age beautifully in your cellar for many years to come. The concentrated red fruit and spice aromas coupled with a voluptuous mid-palate bring the New World style into the fold and perfectly balances the wine which splendidly lingers on the finish.
