NOBLE VINES 2012 PINOT NOIR "667" MONTEREY COUNTY 750mL

While other grapes can admirably perform against the rigors and variety of the Thanksgiving menu (weíre looking at you, Gamay and Riesling), every year we strive to find a great Pinot Noir, our choice for many holiday meals. Noble Vinesí "667" grabbed the reins at our monthly shootout and ended with a victory lap-- this juice is good! So what the heck does 667 mean? Itís a designation.

Over centuries, the French have carefully singled out the most coveted vines in Bordeaux and Burgundy, naming each vine with a unique number to identify its exceptional attributes. Here in California, they planted a selection of these French vines exactly where they will flourish best. 667 Pinot Noir was inspired by treasured Dijon Clone 667 which adds luscious structure and texture to the wine. The gentle slopes of the Monterey vineyard estate produce a well-balanced cool-climate Pinot Noir with concentrated flavors and supple tannins.

The nose is a pleasing blend of sweet cherries and blueberries dusted with a touch of earth, a hint of cocoa and dark floral tones (violets). The palate grabs the fruit baton and runs with it; Bing cherries, mixed red and dark berries, good acidity and lush tannins lead to a rich finish with fruit flavors reverberating for minutes and minutes. This will kill with turkey and all the fixings but can also be enjoyed on its own, or with poached salmon, veal Parmesan or grilled lamb. Cheers!
