Dark red brick in color. Classic aromas fill the glass—dark ripe cherries, licorices, sandalwood, fine earthiness and moss, black olives, fine vanilla, and toasted oak. The mouth-feel is concentrated and elegant with a solid ripe tannin structure, ripe fruit, prunes, figs, wet forest floor, and more black cherries. The finish is complex with great minerality and good balance. This Pinot Noir will age very well and should be paired with big dishes.
Food Pairing Notes
Landius 2014 is the perfect food wine. Pair it with appetizers like a wild mushroom and Burrata bruschetta, or rich creamy butternut squash soup. Try with fish like grilled squid or steamed lobster or meats such as a fennel-garlic pork roast or roasted goose with crispy skin. Sip on a fancy Friday with leek-and-pecorino pizzas, or finish a meal with ripe and flavorful cheeses like Gruyère or melted Brie.
