Deep garnet color portends the effusive rich aromas that leap from the glass. Ripe black cherry, sandalwood and a hint of red apple are the primary aromas, with an underbelly of lees character providing another level of complexity.
Supple mouth filling entrance that embraces you with incredible richness, all balanced with plum skin astringency and acidity. Black cherry, plum and a touch of brioche on the finish completes this hedonistic wine.
Pinot Noir is a perfectly suited wine to pair with a wide variety of foods because of the bright acidity. This wine offers complexity and rich fruit to go along with that acidity. It pairs well with Salmon off the grill or braised Duck Breast. Because of the depth of flavor with this particular bottling, it would also be perfect with Braised Short Ribs with an Asian Spice accent.
