Glen Carlou 2012 Pinot Noir

The wine has a subtle red violet hue that is bright and clean. The nose has earthy tones with mild black cherry aromas combined with hints of strawberries. On the palate, our Pinot Noir has a smooth silky texture, followed by mild tannins that deliver structure and complexity. This is a generously fruit-driven wine with a great balance of harmony of acid and fruit. It’s very enjoyable on its own, but is also tremendously food-friendly
