La Rochelle’s 2008 ‘Sleepy Hollow Vineyard’ Pinot Noir comes from one of the most northerly sites in the Santa Lucia Highlands appellation. The Sleepy Hollow Vineyard has special meaning to Steve Mirassou, who has sourced Pinot Noir from the site since La Rochelle’s inception and for nearly 20 years prior for the Mirassou family’s label.
The site typically produces one of the most dark-fruited, aromatically complex wines in La Rochelle’s portfolio, and the 2008 bottling is no different. Bursting with aromas of black cherry, raspberry, pine and truffle, the exotic aromatic mix blends seamlessly with the flavor profile. On the palate, the Pinot is characterized by black-fruit flavors, a luscious full body, and mouth filling smooth tannins on the finish.
Wine Enthusiast magazine awards this latest achievement 90 Points: “It’s dry but sweetly rich and dense in cherries, black raspberries, mulberries, cola and cedar, with thick tannins. The silk texture and bright acidity make it drinkable now, yet it should develop in the bottle over the next six years.”
Steve Mirassou recommends enjoying the 2008 ‘Sleepy Hollow Vineyard’ Pinot Noir with duck, pork, chicken, salmon, and flavorfully-sauced pasta dishes.
