Posted in : Pinot Noir, Red Wine on by : becca

Westbend Vineyards Le Noirien Other Words on the Label: 2005, Pinot Noir, Yadkin Valley This pinot noir has quite the fiery nose with a strong alcohol presence, plum, and leather.  I taste lots of extra ripe plum, some raw sugar and a bit of bourbon.  It is tart with a light sweetness on some sips.
