Navigator, Pinot Noir - Russian River Valley, Sonoma County
This Navigator Pinot Noir from the Russian River Valley region of California is a complex array of red fruits, mixed with flavors of cola, herbs. Gentle on the oral cavity and rich, generous finish. Beautiful garnet colour with aromas of cherry, red raspberry, baking spice and subtle vanilla notes. On the palate, flavors are of concentrated red and blue fruit, with a core of cherry and dark raspberry with purple violet floral notes. Medium bodied with balanced acidity that lifts the flavors.
Pinot Noir is Burgundy's most famous red grape variety believed to have originated from a rare grape grown in only a few selected regions of France, Gouais Blanc.
