At once plush and elegant, this special blend of 2012 Sonoma County Pinot Noir was sourced from vineyards in the Russian River Valley and Bennett Valley. Its nose of dark cherry, plum and earth evokes the sensation of a cozy night by the fire or a fall picnic up in the mountains. On the palate, Donato Lot 4 reveals a complex, medium-bodied wine with layers of Bing cherry, tobacco leaves and forest floor that languorously finishes with notes of sweet cranberry and spice. True to Russian River Pinot Noir in the ripeness of its character, the richness of the fruit is balanced and scaffolded by the cool, marine climate traits of Pinot Noir from Bennett Valley. Sarapo Donato Lot 4 will be a happy companion to a long list of dishes including Pinot Noir's usual friends - salmon, mushrooms and pork- extending to wild rice, roast turkey, ham and other holiday favorites.
