The nose shows intoxicating aromas of bright cherries, raspberries and toasty oak while initial flavors of dark cherry and vanilla bean give way to classic secondary notes of earth, warm spice, and well-integrated tannins. An intense Pinot Noir with a long finish. Pair this medium-bodied wine with medium-bodied dishes, highlight the earthiness by pairing with roasted vegetables and mushrooms, or enjoy with poultry like roasted turkey or duck.
A really pleasing Pinot that's both fairly priced and widely available, this bottling offers baked strawberry, charred game, sage sap and thyme on the nose. The palate combines cherry compote with roasted meat flavors, making for a full, complex sip.
