Tasting Notes
A woman cupping this glass might mistake it for a Ruby ring worn upside down. I bottled the 2010 SoRho when it was less than a year old to preserve its exuberance and mid-weight palate. The cool 2010 vintage provided lively acidity, with bright and savory fruit making this a perfect pairing for seasoned pork, seared tuna or cedar plank salmon. Aromatic white pepper, herb de provence and sandalwood tickle the nose along with a hint of exotic vanilla. Flavors of pomegranate, cranberry and a background splash of dark cherry, combine to make this a sophisticated, yet refreshing red wine.
