This Week’s Friday Wine Down: Boundary Post Ranch Pinot Noir
An agile falcon with keen eyes, the American Kestrel glides on cool winds that flow from San Pablo Bay, guarding the rows of Mitsuko’s Vineyard where Pinot Noir vines are nurtured. This Napa side of the Carneros AVA provides the ideal climate to produce some of the most engaging examples of Pinot Noir. The marine winds, low yield and long, flavor-building hang-time enables the fruit to reach peak flavor maturity and deep, concentrated flavor.
On the nose, enjoy baking spices, red raspberries and rose petal aromas. Lush flavors of dark cherry and wild earthiness round out this medium-bodied Pinot with an elegant, balanced acidity.
Suggestions for Serving and Pairing
It is recommended that this Pinot Noir is decanted for an hour before enjoying, and prolong cellaring will reward the collector. Mouthwatering and vibrant, this silky Pinot Noir makes an excellent companion to a summer evening with the grill! Think rack of lamb with fresh rosemary, buttered garlicky grilled vegetables, or a cheeseboard carrying an aged farmhouse cheddar.
