Wine Review: This Pinot from Breggo is very impressive. It is dark red colored and opens with a very inviting strawberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, very smooth and silky. The flavor profile is a yummy black cherry with notes of cola and strawberry. The finish is dry and its fine tannins drift away nicely. This Pinot would be a perfect wine to pair with grilled salmon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our 2010 immediately displays the classic hallmarks of Anderson Valley Pinot Noir – an intense aromatic core of black cherry and pomegranate with more subtle notes of forest floor and wild sage. The palate is a lovely blend of sweet black fruits and spicy toast that build on the elegantly defined tannins to give a supple mouth-feel and rewarding finish.

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
