WBC 09 Live Wine Blogging: Benovia 07 Pinot Noir Savoy vineyard
Benovia 07 Pinot Noir has lots of body for a pinot, silky on the tongue, a bit warm 14.5 but not too hot. Yummy, not much in the nose, lots in the mouth.
Never heard of it? No surprise–this is their second vintage only but watch them–expect something great…if you can afford it go for it!
THEY SAY: Expresses the terroir of the region, suggests to match with mushrooms. Retails at $55 sold through mailing list primarily. 37o cases. Mostly a pinot winery some chardonnay and a little zin because they have a zin vineyard.
