Rosehall Run Vineyards does it again with another prestigious award at the 2014 International Wine and Spirits Competition….a Silver! And I’d like to make sure our readers and listeners know about this wine too!
The wine is the Rosehall Run JCR Pinot Noir 2011, VQA Prince Edward County… composed of estate-grown Pinot Noir from two of Rosehall Runs vineyards from grapes that were planted 12 and 13 years ago and the wine aged for 14 months in French oak.
Lots of red fruit, cherry on the palate with hints of spice, a touch of oak and subtle tannins. I’m planning on pairing this up with my turkey and cranberry family dinner, accompanied by one of my specialty mushroom appetizers! Doing wat Dan does best, the Rosehall Run JCR Pinot Noir 2011. $39.00 a super wine of superb quality
