Vine Hill Flanc De Coteau Bloc 2017

Pinot Noir

“Extra care was taken in selecting the specific fruit, fermentation methods and French oak barrels to produce this exclusive, once in a lifetime Pinot Noir,” said Sonoma-Cutrer Director of Winemaking, Mick Schroeter. “This 2017 vintage of our Winemakers Release highlights the artistry and innovation of our winemaking and Pinot Noir craftsmanship.”

Flavor Notes

This year's Winemaker's Release is a beautiful, reddish-purple color. On the nose, complex aromas of dark blackberry and black ripe plum fruit mingle with provocative juniper spice, cinnamon, cedar wood and earth notes. This well-structured Pinot Noir offers good oak integration and firm, polished tannins. The flavors in this wine showcase an abundance of savory tension and complexity that round out to lively fresh acidity with a juicy, lingering finish.

Recipes & Pairings

How to Create the Perfect Pairing

Pinot noir is one of the most versatile red wines and pairs well with a plethora of ingredients from cold meats and cheeses to roasted chicken or lamb. Pair the juicy red fruits and warm barrel spice of our Owsley Pinot Noir with the following to create a truly immersive wine experience.

  • Duck

  • Beef

  • Lamb

  • Hearty Pasta

Pan Seared Duck Breast With Blackberry Sage Sauce

This is a delicious dish and I think a perfect match with Sonoma-Cutrer Pinot Noir. The sauce can be made ahead and reheated. Serve with an earthy combination of pan roasted mushrooms and sautéed kale.

Lamb Meatballs

Serve these Lamb Meatballs as bite-sized appetizers or combined with your favorite pasta dish. Enjoy with a glass of the Russian River Valley Pinot Noir.
