A layered wine featuring both fruit and earth tones.
After coupon cutting, fighting for parking spots and rushing around from store to store on Black Friday, I came home put up my feet and relax with a glass of Amity Vineyards 2007 Winemaker’s Reserve Pinot Noir. While it opened a little tight, the wine after 20 minutes started to reveal its many layers. The dark maroon wine started with aromas of blue fruit, raspberry and licorice. On the palate, it sipped with notes of raspberry and plum then transitioned to light earth, sauteed mushrooms and a finish of sweet cinnamon. With medium-low acidity, this Amity Vineyard’s Pinot Noir drank silky smooth and helped to ease away the rough edges of the day.
