Simply Noir, 2020
Shipped and sold by Stag's Hollow Winery
- Pinot Noir
Consistent with last year’s red fruit spectrum on the nose, this wine shows an abundance of cherry, raspberry, red licorice and florals, balanced by an intoxicating earthiness. Juicy red fruit and dried herbs dominate the palate, which is complemented by the wine’s bright, acidity, gentle tannin structure, and enticing minerality. A great Bistro red that could be chilled a little before serving--the perfect spring and summer red., with or without food.
67.7% Pinot Noir, 22.6% Merlot, 5.5% Gamay Noir, 4.2% Dolcetto
Food Pairing: Classic: cured meats, vegetable tarts, roasted vegetables, ratatouille, tomato salads, picnic & bbq foods, soft-centred cheeses (i.e. Camembert), turkey, pork roast. Adventurous: Jambalaya or any Creole dishes.
Vintner's Comments: This wine is always a treat to assemble. Pinot Noir and Gamay have always made up the majority our our Simply Noir, but this year Merlot edged out the Gamay for 2nd position. We discovered with the 2017 vintage that Dolcetto was also quite a natural match, with its youthful exuberance and earthiness, and it has played a part in the blend ever since. This year’s Simply Noir is a little darker in fruit profile, but still very pinot-esque, and as juicy and delicious as ever.
