Red Bicyclette Pinot Noir 09'

Naked Wine Review 77
Wine: Pinot Noir
Producer: Red Bicyclette
Vintage: 09'
Region: California
Price: 9.00
Date tasted: 6/27/11
Place tasted: It was a lovely late evening limousine ride down Aurora Borealis Blvd. in the good company of a dear friend whom I am lucky and blessed to call my sister. 
Serve with: Stilton Burger ala Wine Witch & JoJo Potatoes. In general, keep your food flavors on the light side so not to overpower the delicate subtleties of Pinot Noir. It would be good with Salmon, Duck, Burgers; but NOT Salmon duck burgers. That's just not right. Light sauces incorporating basil, mushrooms, or lavender would be perfectly acceptable with Pinot Noir.
Appearance: A very clear light cherry red, sitting pretty in your glass.
On the snoot: is a faint and etherial wild rose and cherry blossom.
Taste:  She opens up to you with an enchanting floral breath that gently guides you down a path leading to Dionysus's own secret
orchard. Lingering notes of brilliant cherry and soft vanilla mingle and dance around the happy palate then move with ease into a light and elegant finish. 
Balance: She is svelte as Bhujanga with a magical naked body that transcends balance and goes straight into levitation. 
Comments: From grape to finish, a fine wine is an excellent example of how to live a good life. Each with its own unique qualities and beauty which peaks in character with maturity. The bottle is opened; it breathes; it is shared and becomes a beautiful lasting memory. It was always a good life, from grape to finish.
