Ken's Wine Guide Rates Benovia's "Food Friendly" Pinot

 

89-90 Points | Benovia 2008 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

"This slightly opaque ruby colored Pinot opens with a cranberry and red raspberry bouquet with a hint of black cherry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, well balanced, smooth, and savory. The flavor profile is a tasty red raspberry with notes of mild oak and dried cranberry. The finish is dry, gentle, and pleasant. This Pinot is very food friendly and would pair well with pork tenderloin with a peach or apricot demiglace or Thanksgiving turkey. Enjoy."
