A deep velvet burgundy color is characteristic of the final blend. This wine imparts heady aromas of dark chocolate, strawberry, a light note of dandelion and a trace of smoke. One year in French oak barrels sculpts an array of sweet fruit and roasted nut character in the nose. Full bodied and lingering, the flavors are classic Pinot Noir.
Since Pinot Noir is one of the most versatile food wines, I like to serve our Reserve Pinot Noir with a fine meal that includes dishes of fish and meat and especially lightly smoked meats. Try smoked salmon or trout with pasta or a turkey on the Weber." -Rick Sayre, Winemaker
