Hitting 12.5 percent abv, this light red coloured wine reveals fresh fruit and alcohol on the nose, leading to a semi-dry finish that really wants to be full out dry. It is not a big wine but it is well constructed, dare I say, neatly layered?
The 2007 Pinot Noir is a pleasant drinking wine but don’t overwhelm it with bold flavoured food, or it will be soon out of its depth.
I paired it with gently spiced lamb sausages served with Maison Orphee Organic Old-Fashioned Mustard from Quebec, grilled Ontario fresh yellow zucchini brushed with extra virgin olive oil and seasoned with salt, pepper and a light dusting of chili powder, served alongside fresh spinach pasta with a garlicky pesto, using walnuts in lieu of pine nuts. This food combination worked well with the 13th Street 2007 Pinot Noir, happily riding along for the duration of the meal.
