Aromas of red cherry, strawberry, cedar, forest floor, sandalwood and leather. Juicy flavors of red cherry, red plum, rose petal and forest floor, with great acidity. The finish is long and smooth, with silky tannins.
Try pairing with salmon, burgers, roast game hen, rabbit confit, venison, or bacon-wrapped scallops.
"Dark and hefty, with scents of cola and smoke, this wine’s flavors fall more in line with spiced cherry compote. Pair with a pork chop."
Wine & Spirits
"Light and tangy, with a crisp edge to the delicate guava and tea flavors, lingering silkily. Drink now through 2016. 3,770 cases made."
"The entry level is the 2009 Pinot Noir Cuvee A which offers up a spicy perfume along with floral notes and assorted red fruits. Forward and easy-going on the palate, this nicely proportioned effort will provide enjoyment over the next 4-5 years."
