2015 Runaway Red Pinot Noir

$ 23.00 / Bottle

Peace! Bread! Land! Wine!

This wine does not represent Trotsky, its name describes the amusing story behind the wine. In the middle of the night during Jimi’s first harvest, a single barrel skidded off the rack and rolled out into the darkness. The wine represents this barrel’s quick escape as it accelerated down a hill, and with a gigantic heart breaking splash fell into the creek. When it was finally tracked down, the barrel was found completely intact, between the shoulders of the creek; a true Brooks miracle. This bottling is about pleasant surprises, deep laughter, and good friends.

Rhubarb, sour cherry, pomegranate and cranberry fruit on the nose. A hint of basil and thyme, with a faint touch of orange peel, cantaloupe and white mushrooms. Bright red plum in the mouth, red cherry, rhubarb and cola. Delicious zippy acidity and bright, fresh fruit with a gorgeous, lush mouth feel. A nice hint of dried basil, oregano and thyme, mushroom, forest floor and bergamot tea.

A wonderful patio sipper, this would be so enjoyable with a cheeseburger smothered in sautéed mushrooms, or ribs in a sweet smoky barbeque sauce. Well done!
