The deep ruby color of the Thomas Road is consistent with previous vintages,which speaks to the both the winemaker style and the vineyard properties. This opens with a whiff of currants that drift into forest floor aromas of mushroom, moss, and cedar; reminiscent of the nearby Armstrong woods on a cool morning. The truffle flavors on the palate are accentuated by plush tannins that make this a Cabernet lovers Pinot Noir. Food pairing opportunities are endless: venison, truffle pasta, and duck risotto would be excellent choices.
