Henry of Pelham Estate Winery Speck Family Reserve Pinot Noir 2009
Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: September 11, July 26, September 12 and March 7.
This is a truly, madly, deeply delicious pinot noir! Wow: knock your socks off. Full-bodied but not heavy. Rich and layered with a seductive weave of black cherry, earth and oak. Silky satin texture with mouth-watering juiciness are a great complement to many dishes from planked salmon to pate. Will age well in the cellar. Speck Family Reserve Pinot Noir food pairings: mushrooms, pork liver pates, tuna, grilled salmon, roasted chicken, duck and other game birds.

Opinions about wine differ greatly as the experience is subjective. You may find it helpful to compare this critical evaluation of the wine with mine as well as your own:
|This wine displays wonderful concentration of dense brambly fruit (raspberry, blackberry and currant) while the palate shows staunch structure within a velvet glove and a finish that though satisfying and long, is merely hinting at the complexity and pleasure once it has aged.|
