Winemaker Mike Sinor makes this special blend to commemorate his marriage to Cheri LaVallee Sinor in Beaune, the heart of Burgundy in France. The Pinot Noirs, grown in Talley and Aubaine vineyards, create an intense and impressive wine, the darkest and spiciest of his three proprietary Pinots. It’s layered with flavors of blackberries, black cherries, and plums, nuanced with impressive notes of blueberries and tart Bing cherries. This deep and flavorful wine lingers with a long spicy finish. Well balanced and drinkable now, it will become greater with time in the bottle. So buy two and hide one in the back of your cellar. Let it age five or more years and it will be a treat when you rediscover it. An excellent value at $45 retail, it’s only available online at www.sinorlavallee.com.
