Wine of the Day: MacRostie Wildcat Mountain Pinot Noir

The Wildcat Mountain MacRostie estate vineyard on the Sonoma Coast benefits from cooling breezes off the Pacific ensuring delicate Pinot Noir vines stay dry and healthy while keeping acidity and freshness bright and light, the perfect combination for growing delicious Pinot Noir fruit. 20+-year-old vines dig deep into the volcanic soils of the mountain, giving an earthiness with an iron-rich mineral note to the hand-harvested fruit, creating texture and concentration in the MacRostie Wildcat Mountain Pinot Noir ($58.)

The wine has character, complexity, and density, revealing layers of blue and black fruit wrapped with black tea and earthy woody herb. With broad, balanced tannins, the wine finishes with a lovely hint of dark chocolate, spice, and licorice. This is a food wine, standing up easily to a rich stew, roasted chicken, or braised pork belly. #Cheers
