Bonterra Pinot Noir, Mendocino County
The Bonterra Pinot Noir is breathtaking. This brilliant red-hued wine opens with heady aromas of strawberry, ripe cherry and sweet-tart pomegranate. The palate bursts with bright red fruit, fresh violet and subtle spice, layered over a thread of toast, courtesy of oak aging. There is a wonderful harmony between the wine's velvet-like tannins and vibrant acidity, supported by a long, generous finish.
