2015 Highland Plateau Pinot Noir Wine Philosophy: Highland Plateau believes that quality wine making begins in the vineyard. We focus on select California vineyards and small lot wine production that expresses the finest fruit and terroir of each vintage. Bottling delicious wines of exceptional character demonstrates our commitment to excellence. We hope you will enjoy this beautifully hand-crafted wine.
Food Parings: Full of juicy red fruit notes, our Plateau Pinot Noir pairs well with duck, pork, chicken and also full-flavored fish such as salmon. Vintage Notes: Though the 2015 harvest was lighter than usual, it produced superior grapes. This California harvest was earlier than most years but the constant is the golden sun-kissed climate and cool nights which are best for ripening, defined flavors and balance with a great deal of vibrant freshness.
Tasting Notes: Our Highland Plateau Pinot Noir soars to heights of elegance and finesse. Delight in this complex varietal wine filled with juicy notes of plum, berry, strawberry and cherry. A beautiful ruby red color, smoky nose and sweet, easy finish filled with lingering oak offers red wine lovers peak enjoyment.
Cellaring: This wine can be cellared for intermediate length but is wonderful today and shows best after a short swirl in the glass to decant and enrich the aromas.
