Aerated with a Vinturi and decanted for 0.5 hour. Aromas of cherry, plum, vanilla cream soda, forest floor and spice. Palate echos the nose. Leads to a medium to long finish. Medium bodied with a velvety texture. Paired well with pork tenderloin with a mustard and sage sauce.
You know how it is when you see an old friend who you haven't seen in a long time and it's like no time passed at all, in fact, even better than how great you remembered? Yes, that's Las Alturas for me. The heights of Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir. Welcome back, my friend. Let's do this more often.
