Looking for a big Pinot Noir worth breaking quarantine? Try Cerulean Pinot Noir!
The 2015 Cerulean Pinot Noir from the Columbia Gorge appellation of Washington State is a vivid, medium-bodied wine with notes of dark cherry, clove, and vanilla. Composed exclusively from grapes grown on their Acadia Vineyards estate in Underwood, and barrel aged for eighteen months, it displays a confident structure and concentration with hints of earth in its long finish.
Bold and meaty, is shows musky flavors of fig and plum with a background of underbrush and ample tannins that make it ideal for pairing with grilled meat or game.
Cerulean is a tough brand to find in Colorado, but worth the hunt. They also produce an engaging Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay.
April is Pinot Noir Month in Colorado. Celebrate this universally loved, food friendly style by stopping by or engaging delivery from better stocked, local, family-owned wine emporiums in your community, like Wyatt’s Wet Goods.
