2009 Mobius Pinot Noir
California: Russian River Valley (Sonoma)
In today’s wine we find all sorts of intriguing connections to other wines and wineries that we’ve featured in the past. Mike Kuimelis has grown grapes for some remarkable wines, including a recently-featured wine from Geyser Peak, and from Mike’s own Mantra label.
Winner of a gold medal from the San Francisco Chronicle International Wine Competition, today’s 2009 Mobius Wines Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is a velvet-smooth wine that shows an even balance between fruitiness and earthiness.
This delicious wine is a tad shy on opening, but after some vigorous swirling it really opens up. In fact, it really shines with more authentic fruit flavors and a finer, more voluptuous mouth feel.
Whether you are a fan great Pinot Noir or a fan of Mike Kuimelis’ work (in the vineyards or in the cellar), we are certain that you will love his wonderful and budget-friendly (high QPR) Mobius Pinot Noir.
Lovely dark magenta hues with a slightly darker and very slightly opaque heart.
Very balanced on the nose, with dark cherry, Alpine strawberry, plum skin and pie spice. At the end, a hint of white pepper and a subtle woodsy note.
Mouthwatering and bright up front, the wine presents hard black cherry candy and plum followed by cocoa powder, subtle dried mushroom and hints of dark spice.
Long and very flavorful with fruit gradually giving way to earth, subtle spice and supple leather at the very end.
Bing cherry marinated duck breast on the BBQ or a warm spinach salad with fried egg, goat cheese and bacon.
