X Winery 2007 Pinot Noir Truchard Vineyard

X Winery’s 2007 Truchard Vineyard Pinot Noir comes from the beautiful Carneros region of Napa Valley, a cool-climate location known for its world-class Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs. The Truchard Family has been growing grapes and managing their desirable vineyard property since the early 1970s and their Pinot Noirs are among the most enviable of the region. X Winery has been sourcing Pinot from this famed vineyard since 2003, and has consistently found praise with each subsequent vintage. The X Winery 2007 Truchard Vineyard Pinot Noir exudes classic Pinot Noir aromas of strawberry and raspberry, with a hint of cranberry and dried hay. The wine has a velvety texture with a great balance of acidity that pairs well with a variety of foods (white-sauced pizzas, roast turkey, barbequed pork, and alfredo pasta to name a few). Robert Parker says, “The round, flavorful 2007 Pinot Noir Truchard Vineyard offers up scents of berry fruit, forest floor, earth, and spice. Enjoy it over the next 2-3 years.” [+]
