Au Contraire Pinot Noir 2012

Au Contraire Pinot Noir 750ML 2012     
Sku: 357304

Au Contraire comes from California’s prestigious Sonoma Coast AVA. With over 2,000 acres of vineyards, this appellation extends from San Pablo Bay in the south to the border with Mendocino County in the north. With most vineyards located above fog line, a cool climate and beneficial rainfall levels, it is an ideal growing area for fine Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Tasting notes
Color - Brilliant ruby Bouquet - Layers of cherry, raspberry and plum with a hint of violet are surrounded by subtle spice Taste - An elegant and silky mouthfeel with fine-grained tannins and firm acidity showcase the wine’s ripe red fruit.

 Wine Enthusiast 91 points (Dec 2014)
Light and spicy, this hails from cool-climate sites. It is exhilarating in cinnamon and clove, with a structured core of wild strawberry and a finish of fennel. The aromas of violet that waft forward on the nose are incredibly inviting, as is the wine’s silky texture.

Wine maker notes
This wine is a blend of Sonoma Coast vineyards from Sebastopol, CA to the new Fort-Ross Seaview AVA overlooking the Pacific. The full spectrum of Pinot Noir clones are represented in this wine. Older traditional California selections such as Martini, 2A, and Pommard are complemented by the more recently available Dijon clones (115, 667, 777), as well as low vigor selections from the Swan and Calera vineyards.

Technical notes
100% Pinot Noir

Food pairing
Pairs well with grilled and roasted meats such as lamb, pork, poultry, duck and light sauces, or with delicate cheeses.
