Point Concepcion Wines 2004 Pinot Noir has a powerful nose of ripe black cherry and dark fruits with cedar, lavender and tea leaf. The wine reveals black fruits in the mouth with good acidity. Juicy, mouth filling blackberry, candied cherry and spicy currant flavors finish with a firm grip suggesting vanilla, mocha and dusty chocolate. On the lees for the entire period of elevage, this big wine has benefited from cellaring for a couple of years and is showing beautifully.
Pinot Noir is one of the most versatile wines to pair with food. It goes great with all types of meat including poultry and seafood. Pinot Noir will also pair wondefully with sweet, spicy, and umami (protein, savory) foods.
Pinot tends to be of light to medium body with an aroma reminiscent of black cherry, raspberry or currant. The grape's color when young, often compared to that of garnet, is often much lighter than that of other red wines. Joel Fleischman of Vanity Fair describes pinot noir as "the most romantic of wines, with so voluptuous a perfume, so sweet an edge, and so powerful a punch that, like falling in love, they make the blood run hot and the soul wax embarrassingly poetic.
