2012 Passaggio Unmarked Code Seven Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast Sonoma County
Tonight's wine is my favorite varietal Pinot Noir. Cynthia Cosco winemaker/owner of Passaggio Wines , made 50 cases of this gem and as of this writing the wine is sold out. If you were fortunate enough to taste a bottle, then you know all too well why you should buy more than 1 bottle (unlike yours truly who didn't follow his own guidance).
The inviting nose exhibits tart cherry and cranberry with a hint of cloves. A touch of earthy character compliments the fruit and spice perfectly. Elegant!
The mouth is a blast of bright cherry and fresh cranberry followed by a kiss of warm cinnamon/clove spice and strawberry. The finish is long and silky smooth.One beautiful Pinot Noir Cindy. I sure hope the winemaker held a few back and in that case I'm coming for a visit.
Stop by the beautiful Passaggio tasting room when in the Sonoma Square on your next visit (25 East Napa Street Suite C Sonoma) to sip and taste this award winning winemakers offerings.
