WillaKenzie Estate easily challenges Robert Mondavi Pinot Noir
The Pierre Leon Pinot Noir had a more floral, earthy taste, contrasting with the berry flavors from the Jory Hills Pinot. We loved the strong raspberry and black cherry nose that finished with spice and cinnamon. It was more robust than the Jory Hills, but it had a sweeter finish than head, which made it pleasant and satisfying.
Compared to the WillaKenzie Estate wines, the Robert Mondavi Pinot Noir was more peppery and had a very strong, dark head. It had a more woodsy taste that seemed to overwhelm the dates but stood up to the strong cheeses from the cheese platter. It was definitely a worthy wine to bring to a party, but compared to the estate wines, it sat a bit lonely in its wine bucket.
