Getting Friendly with Pinot

*Disclaimer: I received this wine as a sample from Krutz Family Cellars to participate in a Twitter Taste Live.

What I really love about Twitter Tastings is discovering wineries that I was not familiar with. Over the last year I was lucky to participate in several tasting involving Krutz Family Cellars.  I am in love.  They have skyrocketed to the top of my list of wineries to visit this spring on our annual Northern CA trip.  I can’t wait to taste more of their line up.  On this particular evening, we tasted the 2007 Krutz Family Cellars Pinot Noir.  The Pinot Noir has a real cork closure, clocks in at 14.39% (oddly specific!) alcohol by volume, and retails for $45.

On the nose I found earth, forest floor, mushroom, pepper, spice, and black cherry. In the mouth I got black cherry, strawberry, herbs, spice, and chocolate notes.  I would describe the palate as almost creamy, with plush fruit, round flavors, and a very long finish. The strawberry definitely stood out in the wine. Yum!

  1. I don’t ever recall seeing such a specific ABV as this one – really! Although, the aromas and flavors you describe make me wish I had a bottle or two in my wine cellar…
