Wine Appearance

This dry, full-bodied Pinot Noir has strong tannins and an extended length. The flavors are dominated by strong, jammy berries - strawberry, black berry, and a bit of cherry. There is also a subtle hint of toast in the background. Some people might notice dirt or mushroom notes and stronger flavors of toast or oak.

Ramsay Pinot Noir 2007 Tasting Notes & Review

Palate
This dry, full-bodied Pinot Noir has strong tannins and an extended length. The flavors are dominated by strong, jammy berries — strawberry, black berry, and a bit of cherry. There is also a subtle hint of toast in the background. Some people might notice dirt or mushroom notes and stronger flavors of toast or oak.

Food Pairing

Pairing Ramsay Pinot Noir 2007 with Cheeses

  • Cheddar Cheese (aged): With this pairing, the cheddar cheese becomes sharper while the 2007 Ramsay Pinot Noir becomes more acidic. It's fair, but nothing spectacular.
  • Cheddar Cheese (young): When the Ramsay Pinot Noir is paired with younger cheddar cheese, however, the wine becomes smoother, fruitier, and more pleasant. This is definitely a recommended combination.
  • Aged Gouda: When paired with aged Gouda, the Ramsay becomes more aromatic, more nutty, and the hints of toast become stronger. This, too, is a recommended combination.
  • Havarti: This Pinot Noir becomes a little more sour and sharper when paired with Havarti, and while the wine overpowers the cheese it's still pretty good.
  • Chevre: Then paired with Chevre, the Ramsay Pinot Noir becomes bitter and acquires bad aromas — this is a combination to run away from.

Pairing Ramsay Pinot Noir 2007 with Meats

  • Mild Italian Sausage: When pared with mild Italian sausage, this Pinot Noir becomes more aromatic, fruity, and at times even a little peppery. This is definitely a good combination to try, though I doubt that other kinds of sausage would be quite as good.

Pairing Ramsay Pinot Noir 2007 with Main Dishes

  • Grilled Steak: The Ramsay Pinot Noir becomes drier and more aromatic when paired with steak and overall the combination is pretty good. I'd pair this Pinot Noir with a variety of red meats, especially if grilled.
