Wine of the Week: Brandborg Winery and Vineyard 2009 Bench Lands Pinot Noir

Vineyards: Bench-land vineyards in Elkton AVA

Winemaker: Terry Brandborg

Price: $22

Recognition: Recent vintages received San Francisco Chronicle wine competition medals

Case production: 4,004

Food pairings: The wine's bit of tannin holds up to red sauces while it's smooth enough for salmon, plush enough for wild-mushroom risotto and has the acid for grilled game hens stuffed with lemon, garlic and rosemary.

Tasting notes: The garnet-colored pinot noir has aromas of earth, Bing cherries, crushed, dried tea roses, pomegranate and blackberry candy and flavors of sweet cherry fruit and spice with a subtle smokiness.
