Winemaker's Notes:

This wine features a classic Pommard profile of ripe cherries to red berry flavors. Theres a fresh lushness to the mouthfeel, so its showing incredibly well in its youth. In addition, theres more than enough stuffing in the soft, round tannins such that, in combination with a reasonable pH level, should allow the wine to age for at least a decade, given proper storage conditions. It will go well with classic pairings for the Pinot Noir, such as lamb and grilled salmon, and also a variety of cheeses, but the more adventurous might save some to go with a summers dessert of berry tart (not too sweet).
