Barden Pinot Noir 2012
Deep ruby red. Primary aromas of black cherry, beetroot, and rhubarb leap from the glass. Upon further swirling an array of baking spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, and juniper waft into the fore. The palate shows darker Pinot Noir elements; complex olive, soy, and ink. Dark-cherry and liqueur-cherry flavors arise in the glass with air.
Produced and bottled by Margerum Wine Company. "Barden Pinot Noir is formed so as to touch the heart, mind, body and soul. It's wrapped in a cloak of mystery, lightly adorned, and respected. Ours is a swirling worldly vision, moody but aware—an amalgamation of two hemispheres. We dared and entered this world with trepidation. Pinot Noir is fiendishly complex; we realize we are on the road to madness. It lives near the boar's den . . ."
