Quick Review... Brooklyn Winery Rd 3

NY, Finger Lakes, Heart & Hands, Pinot Noir 2009
++ // Earthy // Cherry, Strawberry, Chocolate, Carmel Apple // Slate, Cherry // Light-Medium

A surprising find, as we haven't encountered many Pinot Noir's out of the Finger Lakes, and none that could compare to ones from the West Coast. Instead of trying to mimic an Oregon Pinot Noir, this wine embraced the terroir of the Finger Lakes, letting the slate and earth notes come through to balance with the natural fruitiness of Pinot Noir.

France, Muscadet de Sevre et Maine, Domaine de la Pepiere, Melon de Bourgonge 2010
