2009 Edna Valley Paragon Pinot Noir

This time, a 2009 Edna Valley Paragon pinot noir that ran me about $16.  Finally a pinot noir this fall that I can say I might drink again.

This hails from Edna Valley Vineyard in San Luis Obispo.  It had more body than most of the pinots I've drunk this fall, and seemed a little sweeter and less tannic.  The label says notes of plum, cherry, and pomegranate, which I think sums it up well.

They call it luscious; I'm not sure I'd go quite that far but it's pretty darn good.  I'd guess it would drink nicely with a tenderloin or maybe even something like chicken marsala.
